Just one year after the release of her last album Unravel the pianist and composer Nikol Bokova comes with her third album. The line-up in this recording is like the author’s dream come true. Her colleagues are the world-renowned French-horn player Radek Baborák, guitarist David Dorůžka, double-bass player Jaromír Honzák and drummer Michal Wierzgon, who are all important representatives of two musical worlds – jazz and classical music – which Nikol has been originally and sensitively combining in her work. The title alludes to Greek mythology but the individual compositions evoke moments shared with a loved person whose passing immediately preceded the project. Music is used to paint scenes and images, conjure up emotions and provide glimpses of memories. It contains strong melodic material and its dynamism issues from alternating tempos which are typical features of the author’s work.
