We’d give our craziest dreams for the half-French, half-French-Canadian pianist, whose poetic world hangs on her fingertips, composing the soundtrack to our lives.
“I won’t say it with utter certainty but I have the feeling that dormant emotions awaken upon listening to my music.” When Alexandra Stréliski tries to explain how her album “Inscape” reached the top of the charts in Quebec, she’d like to believe it was magic. And she’s right. Instrumental and haunted by her only piano, this beautifully stripped-down album reaches into every nook and cranny of our souls. Once her melodies are nestled inside our brains, there’s no getting rid of them. It’s only natural then that cinema and television have unrolled the red carpet for her, and she’s walked it musically with immense talent! The mini-series “Big Little Lies”? That’s her. The film “Dallas Buyers Club”? Her again with her strikingly delicate soundscapes. Stréliski began playing the piano aged 6 and she proudly mentions her heroes: Chilly Gonzales of course, Agnes Obel for her icy poetry and Nils Frahm for his inspired minimalism. A great romantic, Alexandra Stréliski will enjoy the perfect setting of the Choulex Parish, one of the Canton’s oldest and most beautiful. Yes, you’re allowed to close your eyes…
