Ukrainian pianist Vitalii Kyianytsia knows how to convince on his debut album "Last Day of Spring" with an almost perfect touch. With seven of his own compositions, the pianist composed the lion's share of the repertoire, drummer Mathias Ruppnig contributed the fast-paced "Stranger Than Fiction" and the number with the mysterious title "S.O.M. & D.I.D." comes from bassist Johannes Fink. Vitalii Kyianytsia comes from Kiev and learned the piano from the bottom up. "I started playing the piano at the age of six and then had a classical education," he said. "At the age of seventeen, I started to become interested in jazz. In the beginning, I particularly liked Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans and Duke Ellington, later also Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock. I then studied jazz in Kiev, but later also classical composition. This experience was important to me, and my final graduation examination was a piano concerto with an orchestra."
