Isfar Sarabski: »Music is like an ocean.«
Isfar Sarabski's music has roots in the East, branches in the West, and yet possesses a universal soul. The Azerbaijani-born pianist and composer has toured across the planet until the pandemic forced him to pause as well. His solo debut album »Planet« was released in 2021 and shows his artistic growth process, in which jazz, classical music, but also folk music and electronics play an active role.
Both for himself and for his audience, he likes to open doors to the most diverse sound spaces: »It's very difficult for me to limit myself to one genre. Whenever I stay too long in one framework, I need something different. Only that brings real freedom. I couldn't just say: I'm a classical pianist, or: I'm a jazz musician. If you want to find something, you don't think about doors. You just open all of them and go searching. I would even say music is like an ocean: there are no real boundaries, everything merges.«
