About the Artist
After a span of almost 20 years on the Windham Hill and Narada Records labels, pianist IRA STEIN is now exploring new worlds on his own with several intriguing collaborations. In addition to his current recording with Irina, Stein has also recently released BACH IMPROVISATIONS, recorded live in concert at Yoshi's. This highly original album features himself on piano, along with soprano sax and cello, performing lyrical and elegant improvisations on nine Bach Chorales.
Top Customer Reviews
Perhaps it was that day when you stood at an alter, hand in hand, eye to eye, making promises, being oh so in love, a time in your life that you would cherish and consider to be without hesitation, a moment that you could say defined you, made you a stronger person because of it.
These are questions I have asked myself countless times growing up these years, a time when I made life so complicated. In reality there had always been a simple explanation.
Are you ready and willing to believe in something new? Are you ready to experience life as the butterflies we were all meant to be, those who step outside the boundaries of our radio induced beat box of modern media and into a world filled with measures gift wrapped lovingly along ledger lines into notes singing surprises?
If all this so intrigues you, then I ask you so graciously from my heart to make space in your life, for just one more note. Leave open a place in your heart for the magic that is the music of IRARI. It is a place of no regrets, a place to inspire, a place to explore the meaning of love, songs reaching out to you.
Esquisses, the title of the CD, is an album without doubt that heals hearts. It is the arrow released from cupids bow set into motion by vocalist Irina Mikhailova and her always eternal and scintillating voice. She is committed and absorbed, connected in spirit to these lovely Piano arrangements, the dancing keys of Ira Stein.Read more ›
The songs are all good - I just wish they had given Irina a more prominent role in the production!
I would like to hear a lot more of IRINA MIKHAILOVA - she is a brilliant talent who deserves star billing, not just being part of a talented group!
