Award-winning composer and pianist Malek Jandali is one of Syria’s most versatile and imaginative musicians. He is recognized as a leading figure in today's piano world. "A major artist with remarkable musicianship and a world of technique," marvels The Observer, his compositions have "pristine clarity and logic". The Huntersville Herald called him "a new piano talent". Malek is the only Arab musician and the first Syrian composer to arrange the oldest music notation in the world which was discovered in the ancient city of Ugarit, Syria. His outstanding recordings and extensive concert tours receive abundantly glowing praise. Malek's diverse career remains truly international, as he continues to captivate audiences in concerts throughout North America, Europe and Middle East.
"Echoes from Ugarit" takes us back to 3400 B.C. and is based on the oldest music notation in the world! The album includes original compositions for piano & orchestra recorded in Moscow with The Russian Philharmonic Orchestra.
