When my husband asked me to compose a minimalistic album, I felt like he is putting me through yet another challenge. My usual style is anything but minimalistic: lush and jazzy, turbulent and rocking. But sometimes “less is more” and it felt great to step out of my comfort zone while composing this album. We called it “Notte", which means “Night” in Italian. I don’t speak Italian but many musical terms come from this melodic language, so I feel attracted to it.

...Notte... Night.. the time of silence, dreams, reflections.. the time when music happens in between notes more than in the notes themselves. It’s 8pm on my musical clock. The Night is yet to fall onto the Earth. It’s time for Shadows and Sunset, Twilight and Calmness all the way to Midnight. The time goes by, my musical clock shows 1am and the Night is here, bringing Longing, Echoes and Silence. The hour hand is pointing to the right, it’s 3am, it’s time for Dreams, Quietude and Reflections. It’s 7am and the Night is over, giving the way for a new Dawn.

The album is available on: Apple Music, Amazon MP3, Google Play, BandCamp, CDBaby, Spotify.

Living and breathing music, a daughter of many generations of music, I’ve always wanted to share my music with the world. Playing piano since I was four, being taught by great teachers, including my own father who showed me that playing by notes and singing in a choir is not enough to become a musician, I was eager to play everything I liked by ear. By starting to improvise in this way I have found my own style of playing, my own voice through the keys.

What a wonderful pianist, professional, expedient. Flexible and accommodating. Couldn’t dream of a better person to work with!

Absolutely incredible to work with Milana. Very professional, high quality work and quick to reply. Would highly recommend!

Milana is a real professional. SHE exactly wants to know which style YOU want before she starts recording. The recording quality is superb. And all that comes on top of her sparkling talent as a musician and piano player.
