Tania Giannouli (piano)

[ Rattle Records / CD ]

Release Date: Thursday 8 June 2023

Tania's fifth album for Rattle is a beautifully conceived set of expressive piano improvisations, 24 concentrated, deeply personal works full of vulnerability and searching honesty. Solo is an artistically fearless, profoundly musical album, a work that highlights Tania's exceptional talents as an accomplished, highly intuitive pianist.

"Playing solo is, for me, the most liberating thing ever. Being alone with the instrument gives me an incredible sense of freedom. And yet, there is nothing more demanding than a solo recital. Alone on a stage, one is compelled to be truthful, not to hold back or fake anything, and to allow yourself to be vulnerable. In doing so, if one is honest, one finds strength. SOLO is a very personal journey; a story narrated without filters, one I hope listeners will recognise, relate to, and appreciate with their head and their heart". - Tania Giannouli, April 2023

A renowned pianist, composer, improviser and bandleader, Tania Giannouli's imaginative, highly original, genre-defying music has been described as lyrical, eclectic, and intoxicating. Classically trained and inspired by many traditions and influences, her compositions and interdisciplinary projects span a range of styles that reflect a borderless amalgamation of contemporary global reality.
