Elchin Shirinov
Piano

Passionate. Thoughtful. Always playing with care, Elchin Shirinov is a musician for us to discover and enjoy. He has a really good sense of how to orchestrate for the trio setting. In particular, he finds a distinct place for the piano and the bass in the music. Elchin Shirinov has developed a sound and approach all his own.
