Rain Sultanov


Anger is a destructive force. Especially now, in the news, we can witness its impact every single day. And yet it is an integral part of the human condition. On his new album for Ozella, Rain Sultanov is confronting anger by writing some of the most heavenly music of his career.

Soprano saxophone, organ, cello - this unusual instrumentation is at the heart of these nine floating, deeply moving compositions. As such, Forgiveness is an extension of the palette of the 2018 release Cycle, which focused on the core duo of organ and saxophone.

The line-up, however, as Sultanov stresses, is not what matters. What counts is using music as an instrument to transform our anger – and to offer it, others and ourselves forgiveness.
