A CLASSIC TO CLASSICAL
GéNIA MUSIC is delighted to announce the release of a piano version of ‘Someone Like You’ by Russian concert pianist and composer GéNIA.
The voice of Adele shook the world. The fingers of GéNIA and her classical arrangement of ‘Someone Like You’ takes this haunting and emotive melody to a global classical audience. Scheduled for worldwide release for Valentine’s Day, 14 February 2016, this classical piano work preserves and conveys the sonority and emotion of the original.
‘Someone Like You’ is one of the most beautiful love songs that has ever existed and I could not help myself, but to play with its beauty. I very much enjoyed working on this song, trying to preserve its essence and am very grateful to Adele’s and Dan Wilson’s publishers for their official support’.
Recorded on a Steinway & Sons Model D grand piano at Kings Place London and mastered at Metropolis Studios London, this recording demonstrates that beautiful music remains timeless.
The recording is available for pre-order from iTunes.
The recording is also available on GéNIA’s SoundCloud.
