Somewhere between romantic and contemporary post-classical movement, Franco-Swiss international classically-trained pianist, composer and producer Vivian Roost has released his latest album entitled "The Seasons".
Born in Lausanne, Switzerland, near a lake surrounded by mountains, he was marked by the beauty of seasons as a child, and this influence has always inspired his work as a composer. One day, he came across a japonese haiku, and that is how "The Seasons" started to develop.
Inspired by japonese haikus written by Matsuo Bashō, Kobayashi Issa and Naitō Jōsō, The Seasons is an ode to life.
4 seasons for 4 distinct and original sound universes, recorded on 4 meticulously restored centenary pianos.
This aerial album reveals his interest for Japanese culture, shot through these various artistic universes and his truely poetic touch acquired during his first journey in Japan.
