Following nearly three years of silence, FatCatâ€™s 130701 imprint is reactivated, with several new signings lined up ahead of next yearâ€™s fifteenth anniversary of the label that played a pioneering role in the development of todayâ€™s vibrant post-classical scene.
The first of these signings, Dmitry Evgrafov is a hugely talented young Moscow-based pianist/ composer/ multi-instrumentalist. Having studied Sound Design in Moscow, Dmitryâ€™s music blends intimate piano parts with delicately evocative string arrangements and rich electronics, bringing to mind the work of contemporary artists such as David Wenngren, Goldmund or Nils Frahm. â€˜Collageâ€™ is a collection of material drawn from disparate origins, times and locations â€“ all carefully pieced together to form a cohesive whole. Far greater than the sum of its parts, â€˜Collageâ€™ is a beautifully composed, bold and broad-sweeping album that reveals a big step forward for a young and ambitious artist whom we are certain has a very bright future ahead.
Fluid Radio have described Dmitry as â€œâ€¦a prodigious young talent hailing from Moscow, who imparts into his music a maturity which seems grounded by practice far beyond his yearsâ€¦ one gets the impression that Dmitry Evgrafov will become an important contributor to his generationâ€™s neo-classical movement.â€
