At that time, the album will be distributed in Poland, Germany, France, the Benelux countries, Great Britain, Denmark, Japan and the USA.
Kaleidoscope of Views is a double album containing 21 compositions-improvisations. The album was recorded by the composer in 2022 on a Calisia piano. The piano in the author's concept plays the symbolic role of a neo-Renaissance singer performing madrigals and recitatives. The source of inspiration were the texts of the Old and New Testaments.
The elements that bind the piano cycle together are motifs, neo-modal harmonics referring to the works of French and Italian impressionists, ornamentation and virtuosity as well as timbre.
