American record label Prima Classic has released Andrejs Osokins' new album “Two Worlds”, dedicated to two outstanding composers – George Gershwin and Claude Debussy. It depicts both composers as creators of a new style piano music and the beginning of the 20th century as a time of pursuit and experimentation in music.
The layout of all 24 tracks on the album was purposefully and conceptually curated. The album demonstrates the search for musical means of expression by both composers while vividly revealing the mood that prevailed in Europe and the US in the early 20th century.
Even before the album was released three singles that were released – were included in prominent classical music playlists on Spotify, Apple Music and Amazon Music.
Album "Two Worlds" was nominated by prestigious Opus Klassik in four categories.
