Label: SECRET CITY RECORDS / EMI
2020 JUNO winner - Instrumental Album of the Year
recorded in Fall 2017 at Studio PM in Montreal, INSCAPE is the work of an artist unconcerned with conventions, whose approach of neoclassicism is resolutely current. Produced by Alexandra Stréliski herself and Maxime Navert (who also co-produced Pianoscope), the attempt was to fill a certain emotional emptiness, a creative urge that commits to taking the listener back to a form of lost sincerity. One of the rare women in the neoclassical world, Alexandra Stréliski creates music that enthralls listeners, filling their minds with rich, cinematic images. An artist of Polish Jewish origin who grew up between Paris and Montreal, she made her debut with the 2010 album Pianoscope, but the general public discovered her via Jean-Marc Vallée's films Dallas Buyers Club (2013) and Demolition (2016) and, more recently, the trailer of the acclaimed HBO series Big Little Lies (2017). The aforementioned support of Jean-Marc Vallée, which allowed Stréliski's music to be heard during the Oscars ceremony in 2014, brought her streaming numbers up to nearly 15 million and seen her play sold-out concerts at the Montreal International Jazz Festival in recent years.
