Title: Reflection

Catalogue No.: SM 292

Release CD: 28.06.2019

Description

In his compositions, Yury Kunets combines elements of classical music, jazz and pop music. The melody and the romantic character of his symphonic works reflect the essence of the composer. Kunets: “My music has a very lyrical character; I try to convey my view of life and my feelings. It is, so to speak, the result of my philosophical reflections, little stories about our existence surrounded by nature, which in turn is closely connected with our emotional being”.

For “Reflection”, Yury Kunets once again collaborated with arranger and conductor Lee Holdrige (Emmy & Grammy award-winning composer and orchestrator) and recording producer Christopher Alder (10x time Grammy award-winning record producer). “This music explores the true nature of reflection. I did not want to show reflection as a physical phenomenon, as in a mirror, but as a reflection of the spiritual being and the true picture of what is in it.” (Yury Kunets) “Reflection” contains images that draw on a series of inspirations: from the beauty and magic of moonlight and the winter scenes of Yury’s homeland to nostalgia, spirituality and true self- observation.

Description

Yury Kunets kombiniert in seinen Kompositionen Elemente der klassischen Musik, des Jazz und der Popmusik. Die Melodie und der romantische Charakter seiner symphonischen Werke spiegeln das Wesen des Komponisten wider. „Meine Musik hat einen sehr lyrischen Charakter. Ich versuche, meine Sicht auf das Leben und meine Gefühle zu vermitteln. Es ist sozusagen das Ergebnis meiner philosophischen Überlegungen, kleine Geschichten über unsere Existenz inmitten der Natur, was wiederum sehr eng verbunden mit unserem emotionalen Wesen ist”.

Yury Kunets – Russian Winter (Digital Single)

Artist: Yury Kunets – Münchner Symphoniker

Title: Russian Winter

Catalogue No.: SM 306

Release: 10.12.2018

Description

In many northern regions of Russia, it is said that winter never ends. The Siberian winds generate sub-zero temperatures, causing rivers and lakes to crackle and freeze. Delicate ice crystals fall from the endless white sky and dance alongside trees and shrubs. The days are short, and everyday life slows during the darkest months. But it is also a time of festivals and traditions, a time when people greet each other with warmth and kindness to escape the sting of the cold. Bells ring in this magical time in which many look forward to cosy get-togethers and festive markets, teeming with rosy-cheeked children holding spiced sugar cookies and hot chocolate. With Russian Winter, Yury Kunets captures this vignette, creating a melodious picture of familial togetherness.

“A great Russian heart needs great Russian symphonies.” This is how Kunets describes his work himself. It is the Russian composers such as Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich and Rachmaninoff, the German-Austrian greats such as Mozart, Bach and Beethoven, but also jazz legends such as Herbie Hancock Stevie Wonder and Al Jarreau, who shape his orchestral compositions and revive memories of nature and childhood. Little stories about human existence, always connected and surrounded by nature, are preserved throughout his compositions.
