Classically ambient!
The art in creating fluent and descriptive contemporary music is to manifest something from the heart that literally speaks to another’s, on this latest offering by Juan Sánchez the artist has done just that, and quite emotively as well.
Our first tentative steps are gloriously portrayed with a delicate hesitance by a stunning first ambient offering; Rebirth has all the hall marks of a moving cinematic piece, one that is bathed with such a tenderness of spirit and newness in its energies and extremely beautiful in its own way.
The album is described as piano with instrumentation, but it is much more, listen to the careful refrains of the track Beto and enjoy its tender string sections that seem to paint a layer of softness into the proceedings, here is a track that is as charming as a new spring flower and twice as delicate and incredibly fluent in its attractiveness.
On Heading to Dreamland we are gifted something quite moving and personal, the softness of a good sleep is felt, the warmth of the pillow and the lure of a warm quilt, the surroundings lead us into dreamtime, where guided by this quite colourful musical narrative, we are blessed with a moment of symphonic magic as our soundtrack of the event.
There is a slight elevation of energy and excitement within this next offering that is truly inspiring and fascinating, it is called Peaceful Places. Sánchez has indeed succeeded in manifesting something here that is certainly tranquil and quite meditative in the process, but a piece that at all times retains the overall essence of calmness within its construction.
The deepness of performance within this next track is blissful; it’s called Beautiful Rose, the solo piano version. There is a good deal of passion to be found within this piece, but again, still a composition that retains its original concept of ambience, but adds to that a delightful layer of melody and charm in a performance that is truly empowering and flourishing.
The next piece is the second part of the preceding composition and called Beautiful Rose the string quartet version, one can with ease enjoy the lighter refrains of the offering; the string sections are perfectly in balance with the main flow of the piece and deliver to us a smooth and tranquil moment of musical magic.
As we approach the latter part of the album we come across a really interesting and fascinating musical narrative entitled All of Us. The main theme of the album continues to run through this piece, but again there is a depth to this offering that is really well played, a composition that around its musical edges has a real measure of sensitivity about its construction as well; this is one of my favourite tracks off the release.
Our penultimate piece is a song called Arctic Solitude, a composition that ushers in a truly marvellous offering of neo classical proportions, which I believe is where this album should lay its head genre wise, one of the fastest growing in the industry at the moment. The music however depicts a sparse frozen landscape, and the mournfulness of this piece makes this the perfect soundtrack for this location.
So, the last doorway of the album and it is called Silent Tears, a moving opus indeed, one that ends the album in the perfection with which it was started. The performance on piano here is crafted and well worked, and thus manifests for us all a mood of emotive brilliance, and of course a great way to leave what in all honesty is a really good album.
Rebirth by Juan Sánchez is a real second chance of a release, from ambience to the neo classical and a mixture of both styles can be found here, and that is perfect because it is beautifully done. Sánchez literally plays with his heart and soul on his sleeve with this release and this openness of musical spirit has gifted to us something new, fresh, and quite entrancing, and one that I have no problem at all recommending.

From MainlyPiano
Earlier this year, I reviewed a debut single by Spanish composer/pianist/music producer Juan Sanchez called “Rebirth.” I gave the single a very favorable review and was happy to learn recently that not only had Sanchez released a series of singles, he had released a full album of nine original tracks also called "Rebirth." Some of the pieces are solo piano and some are ensemble works composed in an ambient/neo-classical style. Performed on a variety of different pianos and keyboards, each track has its own sound, but the album flows very smoothly from start to finish.

Sanchez started piano lessons at the age of 14 “when a deep passion for music and creation of art was born.” He played keyboards in a series of bands and went to London in 1995 to study music and technology; he stayed there for five years. Sanchez started to compose ambient electronic music in 1999 and has been creating music for multimedia and sound libraries ever since. He had always dreamed of becoming a professional pianist and composer, but lacked the self-confidence to pursue his dream. Soon, he discovered the music of Max Richter, Ludovico Einaudi and other artists who were composing the kind of music Sanchez envisioned, and the spark of passion was ignited.

Appropriately, the album begins with the title track, “Rebirth,” the first piece Juan Sanchez ever released. Often asked the reason for his choice of titles, Sanchez explains: “Over the course of the last two years, I have started to learn how to reprogram my brain by taking personal development courses. My goal is to completely overcome my self-limiting beliefs that were hindering my growth and personal development. Now that I am starting to see the fruits of my success and change the way I think, I feel that, in some way, I am becoming a new person – I have been reborn.” Haunting and introspective, it’s a beautiful first piece! The bittersweet “Beto” features Sanchez playing gently-flowing broken chords on the piano to support the poignant melody on strings. I really love this one! As its title suggests, “Heading To Dreamland” is a sweet lullaby, also for piano and strings. Very smooth, soothing and relaxed, much of the piece is played in the upper half of the piano, giving it a feeling of sweetness and innocence. “Peaceful Places” is played on a piano with either the una corde (soft pedal) on or the piano strings slightly muted. Occasional sounds from inside of the piano can also be heard, an effect that has become very popular - especially in Europe - the past several years. Two versions of “Beautiful Rose” appear back-to-back with the solo piano version coming first, followed by an arrangement for string quartet - both are elegant and very beautiful. “All of Us” returns to the more “prepared” piano, but this time the inner workings of the piano are a bigger part of the piece with the sounds of the key mechanisms very obvious throughout - always an interesting effect. “Arctic Solitude” for piano and strings expresses a chilly sparkle and a feeling of vast openness that is far from unpleasant or lonely. “Silent Tears” closes the album and is probably my favorite piece in the collection. The contrast of the smoothly-rolling broken chords in the bass of the piano and the more percussive right hand enhanced with ambient sounds create a very moody effect that I like.

"Rebirth" is a very strong and promising first album ! I give it two thumbs up!
