Pavel (*1998 in the Czech Republic) started to play the piano at the age of 3. Even though he studied the classical piano interpretation in Poděbrady (Czech Republic), the alternative genres of piano music like New Age Classical or Contemporary Classical seemed to impress him. The freedom of composition, the freedom of expression and how the audience could feel the energy of the music seemed like a dream of the pianist. That led him out of the classical training, focusing more on the contemporary musical styles and also encouraging him to begin studies at Boston’s Berklee College of Music.
Pavel felt the inspiration of people like Enya, Mike Oldfield, but also Yiruma, Robin Spielberg, Jim Brickman or Jon Schmidt and inclined to find his own way of composing piano music. On his first album, Lost in the Wind, he tried to continue in the perfection of his composition skills, arranging 13 well-known pop songs, and offering the quartett of his own improvisations. The album became the first step of Pavel’s musical journey.
The four improvisations later became the main singles of the album, together with covers of Love Me Like You Do and River Flows In You. The album was originally produced and released by Pavel on his own, later becoming the agenda of Neor Records. Although some improvisations became featured on radio stations, the album itself didn’t get much attention. It was also due to Pavel’s intention not to promote the album, as it didn’t feature any of Pavel’s spotlight compositions. These were yet to come…
After release of the debut album, Pavel started composing melodies and harmonic sequences for the second upcoming album. The decision was made from now on to include primarily the original compositions, rather than improvisations or covers. In August 2017, Pavel announced the work on his second album is coming to its end and the album may be released in the very near future. In October 2017 the album was musically done and the release was planned for the end of 2019.
After nine years of Czech basic education programme and six years spent at grammar school in Kolín, Pavel felt the life has come to seem full of repetition and thus made a decision to graduate at the Czech private grammar school OPEN GATE, which offers its students internationally acclaimed IB Diploma Programme and its own examinations together with the traditional Czech graduation examinations.
After graduation Pavel decided to study University of Economics in Prague together with the acclaimed Berklee College of Music, based in Boston.
