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.”
From an early age, Streliski is moved by romantic composers such as Chopin, Rachmaninoff and Schumann but film composers like Hans Zimmer, Philip Glass and John Williams were also a great inspiration for her as she grew up. One of the rare women in the modern classical world, Streliski made her debut with the album Pianoscope in 2010. Independently released, the album eventually reached 15 million streams and was heard in various film and TV projects. Jean-Marc Vallée’s Oscar nominated film “Dallas Buyers Club” even led her music to be heard at the Academy Awards ceremony in 2014.
In 2018, Stréliski signs a record deal with the Montreal-based label “Secret City Records” and releases her second album Inscape. With more than 110 million streams worldwide and 97,000 albums sold, the album is a commercial and critical success since its release. Now certified platinum in Canada, it has rewarded Streliski with three Felix prizes (Quebec), an “Album of the Year” award at the Canadian Independent Music Awards, and three JUNOS nominations, including “best album” in 2019.
