Drowned in Sound

The haunting beauty, fragile melancholy and instrumentation that speaks volumes all makes for an album that reaches far beyond its three quarters of an hour run-time. One of the most hauntingly beautiful records you'll ever hear.


A lyrical, rhythmic and emotive modern classical sound that enthrals to the last.


The Blue Hour has finesse, sensitivity and lightness of touch: all the hallmarks of a great modern classical album.


Berlin-based Italian pianist and composer's deeply felt, neo-classical beauty of cinematic scope and intensity with grand piano tones and complex orchestrations building up to a dreamlike quality of organic nature. Migrants as a track swells with ever growing sense of yearning and sadness unlike anything I've heard before.


Touched my heart...
This is...
I can't describe this album... I really can't. Every single track is soooooo fucking gorgeous, dreamy, calm, dark, lonely and beautiful...
One of my favorite albums of all time.

You stupid people... I wish I could kill u all. Just plz don't listen to these gorgeous classical albums.

Favorite tracks: Migrants, Time Has Changed, My Piano Night, The Blue Hour, Shadow Land Pt.2


People! Please stop rating high every classical record...
