Mystical Suite contains nine ballet scenes depicting various mystical phenomena. See the links below for details.

Musical joke Christmas Toys Fighting and Climbing up the Christmas Tree is a small and scary 5.5 min. ballet-phantasmagoria, where sparkling Christmas Toys dance, compete and fight for being perched on the most beautiful places of the Christmas Tree. It includes comical mobilization scenes, tread and horror of broken toys, beautiful kitsch-dance of the toys on the Tree branches, and winning apotheosis of the perched figures.

Only after completing this track I realized that

this joke is about musicians fighting and climbing up the media attention,

about university scientists fighting for the recognition of their results,

about businessmen fighting and climbing up the financial pyramid, about ...

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
My occupation "for living" is mathematics and computer science. As a musician, I am more a pianist-improviser, depicting current mood and impressions, than a composer writing music in a cold mind status with strict calculations of the music form, texture and harmony. I find many musical inspirations in a scientific research, and sometimes vice versa. Presenting my compositions here, I am looking for a feedback and for ideas how to improve the quality of the music, better organize the improvisation sessions, develop and apply specific tracks etc.

In 2010-2011 I received several awards in the prestigious "Song of the Year" songwriting competition:

Mathematics!? Computer Programming!? Piano Improvisation!? You've just made a friend! I look forward to opening a dialog with you.

Thanks. You're doing quite a serious work yourself!

Actually my 'jazz' is some sort of twisted version of jazz- 'fake jazz'. Ha! Whatever it is, I am having fun!

I'd like to hear something similar to Two Jazzmen, which is interesting, but with pauses and a swinging jazz rhythm. :)

Wonderful music

Hi Andrew. I absolutely like your music. Although it already sounds great the way it sounds now, I would love to hear it performed by a real orchestra. I am new here on this forum and you're one of my first encounters here. Great! Thanks for your music.

Hi Andrew, thank you for listening and for your positive feedback. It's wonderful to hear such diversity in your music. Amazing compositions. :)

thanks Andrew

I like your music, you can never say what is due to come, but you can always enjoy the present moment as part of an organic thing... two aspect normally incompatible. And, more important, never boring !

Thank you again. I guess convention will change... Really like the textures of your compositions...


All the very best

Thank you. Innate Affection was composed for an ensemble. Some of the musicians are not as proficient as others, but equally musically expressive. So a piece that would include them in the make it enjoyable was important. So some of it was composed so it doesn't really matter what pitch is played as long as it's in the right octave and the rhythm is played correct; so the interpritation could slip into improvisation if needs be...

Do your compositions get played out? It's intresting how your peices hand together...


Very best wishes
