Description

NEW EXPANDED EDITION OF THE DEBUT SOLO ALBUM FROM THE VIRTUOSO IAMTHEMORNING PIANIST FEATURING AN IMPRESSIVE LIST OF GUEST PERFORMERS 'this music comes from deep within his soul. What treasure lies there' - Prog Magazine

Following the success of two highly-praised albums with Iamthemorning, Russian virtuoso pianist Gleb Kolyadin affirmed his musical authority with his debut, self-titled, album on Kscope in February 2018.

The record features a staggering who's-who of performers, including: the unmistakable voice and lyrics of Steve Hogarth (Marillion) alongside Mick Moss (Antimatter); Gavin Harrison (King Crimson / Porcupine Tree) on drums; Nick Beggs (Steven Wilson / Trifecta) on bass; Theo Travis (Robert Fripp / Porcupine Tree / Steven Wilson) on flute and saxophone; and Jordan Rudess (Dream Theater) on additional keys.

'Gleb Kolyadin' is an emotive exploration of self-identity; a story of two parts with interweaving leitmotifs. The album's central concept weaves through an elaborate tonal and thematic structure, built around the extraordinary rhythm section of Gavin Harrison and Nick Beggs, which is accented at its focal points by guest appearances from Steve Hogarth, Jordan Rudess, Mick Moss and Theo Travis.

This new expanded CD edition of 'Gleb Kolyadin' features two bonus tracks, May 26th & July 8th. Recorded on both dates respectively, the tracks are taken from Gleb's vast musical diary ('Poloniumcubes') of drafts and sketches that go on to form the basis of both solo and iamthemorning material. The two previously unreleased tracks were selected specifically as an organic ending and post-script to the main story of the debut album.

The album, presented here in digipack packaging complete with an 8-page booklet, is a collaborative piece with each musician recording their own parts separately, starting with Gleb recording himself on grand piano in Moscow, Winter / Spring 2017 at the famed Mosfilm studio. The album was mixed and engineered by Vlad Avy, who also previously worked on the two Iamthemorning records.

"Gleb Kolyadin is a beautiful pianist and a great musician." Steve Hogarth "Gleb Kolyadin is a rare talent. A virtuoso classical pianist with tremendous compositional skills quite breath taking." Nick Beggs
