Expiring World By Victor Birkan


Expiring World

One can always gaze upon life turbulence and pity our distraught world, we have an opportunity through the medium of music to listen to one such composition, and by one of the most artistic and gifted pianists of his day, in Victor Birkan, with his latest single Expiring World.

There is so much to enjoy musically here, the mood filled arrangement is enthralling, but Birkan seems to have touched on various territories here as well, within this one simple song one can detect not only a European style sifting through, but also a little middle eastern ethic as well at times, in what is a truly fascinating ride.

For me personally felt piano is something that has to be performed technically spot on, and with a certain artistic endeavour that manifests moods of textured tones, with a compelling narrative, I am glad to say that Birkan does all that and more, in one of his most creative manifestations yet.
