The Russian composer, whose repertoire is the trend in the most daring music scene today, namely the fusion of traditional classical forms (sonata, suite, studio, escape, etc..) with jazz styles
improvisational more intellectual and refined, has also dedicated to him his 18th Sonata for piano.
“Thanks to the playability and versatility of Audio Modeling’s SWAM instruments I found the stimulus to orchestrate the rather daring and complex pieces of my piano repertoire through a new concept based on the “One Man Band”.
The soloist is able not only to perform but also to conduct at the same time, in a flexibility that comes from the emotionality of interpretation, using a virtual orchestra which, thanks to SWAM, sounds as if it were real.
In addition, the Camelot application is the ideal support during my live performances because, with its complete MIDI implementation, it allows me to do everything without a DAW therefore avoiding unpleasant inconveniences.”
