    Album of the Month April 2019 | Hania Rani - Esja

    Hania Rani - Esja

    Hania Rani is a pianist, composer, and musician who splits her life between Warsaw, where she makes her home and Berlin where she often works. She has written for everything from strings over voice to electronics and has collaborated with many critically acclaimed acts such as Christian Löffler and Hior Chronik. Her music can be classified as belonging to the modern classic genre which is expressed through a new approach to classical music forms and using acoustic instrumentation.

    "The compositions were born out of a fascination with my principal instrument – the piano – which, on the album, takes form of an upright from my flat. In my own subjective way, I try to reinterpret the capabilities of its sound and harmonies, observing the way in which it resonates within a compact room space and translating, into the language of keys and hammers, the melodies I overheard on the road – most significantly, during my travels to Iceland and the Bieszczady Mountains in south-eastern Poland."
