Alexandra Streliski is a Montreal-based pianist and composer whose music is "distinguished by its sensitivity and softness, sometimes evoking Satie, Glass and Nyman."
Her piano works have been featured in movies including "Dallas Buyers Club" (2013) and "Pee-Wee 3D" (2012). Her album "Pianoscope" (2010), embedded below, "takes us into the world of dream and cinema."
The album is available as a digital LP, a CD, and a sheet music booklet.
