Andante Piano, the neoclassical piano label, is proud to declare its commitment to humanitarian aid by pledging to donate 50% of its royalty share in 2023 from the release 'Helen' by Ukrainian pianist Pol Solonar to the Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation, chosen by the pianist himself.
Pol Solonar, a gifted pianist hailing from Ukraine, is making his debut on the esteemed Andante Piano Label with 'Helen', a magnificent neoclassical piano piece, brimming with raw emotion, and a heartfelt dedication to his wife of the same name. As the first Ukrainian pianist to join the label, Pol currently resides in Kyiv, where he has witnessed the profound impact of the invasion of Russia in Ukrainian territory and the ongoing war. Inspired by Pol's personal connection to these events, the team at Andante Piano is driven to contribute and provide assistance to those affected.
The release of 'Helen' is scheduled for June 23rd, 2023. Andante Piano urges music lovers worldwide to join in their endeavor by streaming this soul-stirring composition. The more people who stream 'Helen', the greater the revenue generated, allowing Andante Piano to make a substantial donation to the Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation. The foundation has been tirelessly working to alleviate the suffering caused by the conflict and provide vital humanitarian aid to affected individuals and communities in Ukraine.
By embracing the power of music and coming together as a global community, Andante Piano and Pol Solonar aim to create a positive impact and bring hope to those in need. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those affected by this humanitarian crisis.
The composition "Helen" is dedicated to my wife, Helen. It reflects our unforgettable moments and shared challenges, starting with gentle chords and transitioning into emotional motifs. In every note, there is a profound love that symbolizes our story, past, and future. - Pol Solonar
