Nataliya Lebedeva Ensemble. Quests. (feat. HP Salentin). /digi-pack/.


..Under the silk, multilayer mosaics of depths are perceived – and yet one cannot (does not wish to?) with a careless motion destroy the delicate balance, the fascination half a step to... This is beauty. Seemingly so simple and open, and this openness transforms into – mystery beyond words.

Ernest Hemingway. Fiesta. I sontse skhodyt. (The Sun Also Rises)


The iconic work depicts the postwar "lost generation" of the 1920s. With his short concise strokes, which became a hallmark of his style, Hemingway portrays the fragile illusion of balance, the self-destructive instinct that prevents the characters from fully unfolding their capacity. The only option for them is to feast while the fiesta goes on, and each time hope for a new dawn.

Laura Marti, Kristina Marti. Try to feel. (feat. HP Salentin). /digi-pack/.


It is a living flow that erodes and connects the banks – the universal language that remembers all dialects, but does not preserve them, gives them space for movement and development. Actually, this is what the entire album is about: the form is changeable, try and feel what does not depend on it – and therefore has the power to change it. And may the power be good.

Given the amount of work that Filatov is doing for a number of other performers, it is even surprising that he has enough energy and inspiration for his own project. However – he has enough. Enough energy, and imagination, and taste. Always in motion, in the process of development, always better than before – or, at least, different. The new album is an excellent illustration of this vector.

A obedient cultured child is a dream of all parents. But in real life there is no such "role-model-child." As well as any adult, a child is an individuality having his/her desires, own character, and mood swings. And parents need to learn to communicate with their child who is insistent, sometimes naughty, or even falls into hysteria..

This music lets into – and then does not let go so easy. It seems quite chamber one, but with bright prominences of scale. There is enough sophisticated space, sometimes resembling M. C. Escher's drawings, to simultaneously relax and mobilize. Nightbound does not allow for dissolving in the melancholy trance, they request co-participation..
