Leo Svirsky is a Russian-American pianist and composer currently based in the Hague, Netherlands. Grounded in history, symbolism, song and story, Svirsky’s music upholds a poetic, romantic quality. After a beautiful recorded preview in May, at the Rewire 2021 offline edition Svirsky will present the full live version of his expansive project Leo Svirsky & The River Without Banks. Created through an extensive collaborative process with Reinier van Houdt (piano), Germaine Sijstermans (Clarinet), James Hewitt (baroque violin), Marielle Groven (violin), Mark Morse, Jeroen Kimman (steel guitars), Aaron Lumley (Bass), and many others, ‘The River Without Banks’ immerses the listener in never ending reverberation, unbinding place and time and blurring the perception of past and present.
