"Oriental Sonatas" is an album of instrumental music performed by the Lebanese pianist and composer Wassim Soubra, who writes using the grammar of classical music (harmonies, counterpoint) combined with the sounds of his childhood, a western composition that tells an eastern, Lebanese story. Life and music are not separate entities; on the contrary, the aim is to bring them together, to be present at the piano body and soul and through the music to tell stories that cannot be expressed in words, from emotions to wounds; and also to tell of the life that passes through all of us and which can, sometimes, in spite of everything, fill us with joy: the joy of being in the world.
