Andrew Goldberg and Ricky Romain present compositions from their latest album
Variations for piano and sitar. An alchemical meeting of Western Classical Music and Indian Classical Music.
The album Variations, is the result of a natural and simple evolution that occurred
when Andrew Goldberg on piano and Ricky Romain on sitar started improvising
with themes and moods based on traditional Indian Classical Music.
“Variations is a journey into a musical world or soundscape that hasn’t really
been explored, mainly because of the nature of the two instruments which are not
natural bedfellows”. Ricky Romain, sitar player
“Pianist Andrew Goldberg and sitar player Ricky Romain make extraordinarily
robust but sensitive music in creating a fusion between the fluid intonation of
Indian Classical Music with the more fixed and tempered sounds of the European
piano. It is a path that some few others have trodden although, in all truth, it has
to be approached with respect and taste. Having heard some of their recordings it
is clear that they have these qualities in abundance “ Sam Richards,
