Dreams and Shadows
The master of felt piano Victor
Birkan is back with another single and this time he glances into the world
of Dreams and Shadows, this has to
one of Victors most textured offerings to date, the explorative style starts in
a tentative tone, but soon embraces his new found reality.
Dreams and the shadows they create can affect our day time
perambulations as well, and within the mid-section of this sensitive
arrangement one can feel the tone sharpen, become deeper, as if reality has
taken hold, perhaps in a waking moment, but then the performances falls softly
back to its previous timbre as sleep once more takes control.
Victor Birkan is the creator of some inventive and
artistic creations and on this new single he shows his more cautious artistic
persona, as if the listener is literally walking in a dream state and unsure of
what may lie around the next corner.
This one should pacify those who adore solo piano and wish to be taken on a journey through music. Victors skill set on this instrumentation is delightfully relative, and as such, he should be able to add to that list of ever showing hits with ease, Dreams and Shadows.
