Violinist and composer Alexander Gushchin presents the album of the band Antorino "Medieval Crossover". His recently written classical pieces for violin and piano are light, tender, affecting and captivating. His music can be classified as neo-classical music (for example, Yann Tiersen, Ludovico Einaudi, Brian Crain, … and of course Rolf Lovland and his duet Secret Garden are known for the same genre).
It all began when he included several well-known pieces in his collection. This was what inspired Alexander to create something similar himself, since he had never previously done anything of the sort, not to mention that using asymmetrical rhythms, such as 10/8, 11/8, 13/8, ... was familiar, enjoyable territory for him. That which cannot be expressed in words is revealed in music... It is an indescribable feeling, that feeling of perfect inner harmony, when the creation of music is as simple and natural as breathing, leaving absolutely no one that hears it indifferent... His first solo album "Call of the depths" was released in 2014.

The Cliff

By a cliff a golden cloud once lingered;
On his breast it slept, but, riseing early,
Off it gently rushed across the pearly
Blue of sky, a tiny thing and winged.
Still, a trace it left upon the stony
Giant's heart, and plunged in thought and weeping
Slow and tortured tears, he stands there, keeping
Vigil o'er the gloomy waste and lonely.

Practicing in studio...
