Editorial Reviews

Andrew ROUSSAK is a classically-trained Russian pianist, who has settled down in the German town of Karlsruhe. Our man is both at home recording Moog and Hammond tracks for Progressive rock projects, while playing works by CHOPIN and BACH. His solo piano album "Blue Intermezzo" (Dreaming, 2010) contains twelve original tracks (Andrew ROUSSAK's own compositions), and three classical renditions made by him. If you like the music of Keith EMERSON, Rick WAKEMAN, BACH, CHOPIN and GERSCHWIN, you will love this album too !

Format: Audio CD
Every once in a while a CD comes across my desk that just blows me away. Andrew Roussak's "Blue Intermezzo" is such an album. Roussak was named Best Keyboard Player and Best Instrumental Soloist in the 2006 German Pop and Rock Awards, so he has obviously established himself in the German music scene - especially in the Prog Rock genre. Hopefully he is on his way to becoming recognized internationally.

Andrew Roussak was born in Russia and started learning the piano at the age of seven. He graduated from the Ufa State College of Arts as a pianist and was employed as a studio musician and as chief musical editor at the local broadcast station. He relocated to Germany in 2001, working as a freelance artist, playing concert gigs, writing orchestra scores, doing studio work, and teaching piano and keyboard lessons. One of the things that makes Roussak unique is that he seems to be equally comfortable with classical, jazz, and rock music and often combines the styles within the same pieces. His mastery of the piano is readily apparent with dazzling fingerwork and impeccable technique. I would be reluctant to call this "new age" piano because of the big sound of Roussak's music, yet it's more complex than rock, not quite classical, and not quite jazz. That makes Roussak an artist who defies categorization - a true original!

"Blue Intermezzo" begins with "All Good Things," an "unplugged" version of a piece that Roussak composed for his 2006 debut No Trespassing. From the beginning, we are introduced to Roussak's eclectic style and virtuosity at the piano. "Greensleeves" is given a very unusual treatment that is probably closest to jazz. With fingers dancing all over the piano at a lively tempo, Roussak makes this classic his own. "Strange Tango" is dark and very dramatic.
