NEW ALBUM: REFLECTION (2019)
For “Reflection”, Yury Kunets once again collaborated with arranger and conductor Lee Holdrige (Emmy & Grammy award-winning composer and orchestrator) and recording producer Christopher Alder (10x time Grammy award-winning record producer). “This music explores the true nature of reflection. I did not want to show reflection as a physical phenomenon, as in a mirror, but as a reflection of the spiritual being and the true picture of what is in it.” (Yury Kunets) “Reflection” contains images that draw on a series of inspirations: from the beauty and magic of moonlight and the winter scenes of Yury’s homeland to nostalgia, spirituality and true self- observation.

SINGLE: RUSSIAN WINTER (2018)
"In many northern regions of Russia, it is said that winter never ends. The Siberian winds generate sub-zero temperatures, causing rivers and lakes to crackle and freeze. Delicate ice crystals fall from the endless white sky and dance alongside trees and shrubs. The days are short, and everyday life slows during the darkest months. But it is also a time of festivals and traditions, a time when people greet each other with warmth and kindness to escape the sting of the cold. Bells ring in this magical time in which many look forward to cosy get-togethers and festive markets, teeming with rosy-cheeked children holding spiced sugar cookies and hot chocolate. With Russian Winter, I attempted to capture this vignette, creating a melodious picture of familial togetherness." Y.K.
