Alexandra Stréliski

Alexandra Streliski is a Montreal based pianist who creates minimalist and cinematic music. As Billboard calls her “one of the foremost new stars in modern classical”, Noisey describes her music as “a contrast of depth and fragility that uncannily resembles the human condition itself.”

From an early age, Streliski was moved by romantic composers such as Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Schumann but film composers like Hans Zimmer, Philip Glass and John Williams were also a great inspiration for her as she grew up. One of the rare women in the modern classical world, Streliski made her debut with the album Pianoscope in 2010. Independently released, the album eventually reached 15 million streams and was heard in various film and TV projects. Jean-Marc Vallée’s Oscar nominated film “Dallas Buyers Club” even led her music to be heard at the Academy Awards ceremony in 2014.

Even though from a classical academic background, Streliski doesn’t bother too much with conventions or labels. In her attempt to fill a certain emotional emptiness and collective need for calm, she looks to take listeners back to a form of lost sincerity, looking for the purest and simplest way of expressing an emotion through art, with the only voice of a piano.
