Tour includes show in Paradiso-Noord in Amsterdam on November 15th
The Montreal composer and pianist Alexandra Stréliski is thrilled to perform in Europe again this Fall. The tour recently kicked off at the Reeperbahn Festival in Germany where Stréliski performed last weekend. She is now on her way to Nyon, then Iceland Airwaves and finishes the tour off in Berlin, Paris and on November 15th in Paradiso-Noord in Amsterdam.
Alexandra Stréliski is also tied with the most nominations (alongside Les Louanges) at the ADISQ Awards this year in her native province of Quebec, a big accomplishment for a pianist who writes instrumental music. The seven nominations for her certified gold record 'INSCAPE' were announced last week:
Songwriter or composer of the Year Album of the year - Critic’s choice Album of the year - Instrumental Bestselling Album of the year Artist with the most international recognition New Artist of the year Album artwork of the year (Catherine Pelletier, Elisabeth Gravel)
"Seriously, I'm incredibly proud. Proud of my team, of my album, but also proud of me. It all came from a very dark mental place. I had the courage to face myself and face my fears and today I am here. It's a (another) huge pat on the back that confirms that I made the right choice and I hope it can give hope to people. Because resilience is a force that can take us a long way. "
This past summer, Secret City Records handed a gold record to Alexandra Stréliski to highlight the 40,000 copies sold of her latest opus in Canada. From sharing her first self-produced compositions on Bandcamp in 2010 to her performance at the Montreal International Jazz Festival in a sold-out 1 500 seater, Alexandra’s career has bloomed, propelled by the love of her fans.
