Alexandra Stréliski – Néo-romance

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.” Accumulating over 300 million streams worldwide, her music was also heard on many films such as Dallas Buyers Club, Demolition and on HBO in the acclaimed shows Sharp Objects and Big Little Lies.

With her Neo-romantic tour, Streliski proposes a moment of calm, dream and imagination inspired by the great themes of the romantic era, nostalgia, nature and spontaneity.

For the ablum Néo-Romance, Alexandra Stréliski pondered a question. Intrigued by Romanticism, the romantics, and their “super dark” relationship to nature, she wondered what it all meant in this modern world we’ve created. “The ancient past, freedom from rules, devotion to beauty, these big romantic themes, but really expressed in a post-modern way,” she says “How do you remain in that imaginary world in these disillusioned, scary times we’re living through? That was the premise and setting for the album.”

The subject matter of Néo-Romance was but one departure from Stréliski’s usual modus operandi long associated with the neo-classical movement, she wanted to distance herself from a tag that doesn’t accurately reflect her work. Inspired by the idea of encapsulating and expressing emotions through art, and the Romantics’ love of individual expression over the restraints of tradition, she set out to follow her instinct. “I’m much more of a romantic in the sense that I express my own inner world to make sense of the wider world,” she says. “So, the thread I’m pulling on here is the idea of neo-romance, in a musical way but also as a form of contemplation.”
