Dulce Joya is a European pianist and composer, whose dedication to the works of the classical era from the likes of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and other contemporaries have influenced her to get to where she is today. Joya’s third full length album, Renaissance, is a palette where Jaya has embraced her artistic vision and savours in her sweeping symphonies.
Renaissance takes you through a roller coaster ride of emotions, from the broad extent delights found in Arcadia, thunderous rolls and crashes in Extasis juxtaposed with beautiful arpeggios that roll seamless over the piano. The lengths of the tracks can be from either four minutes or titanic seven to 10 minute opuses, all of which Dulce Joya gleefully finds the time to expunge her soul into her work, such as the travels found on the track Luminosa which finds the straight line between chaos and calm and the dark chamber pieces and found on Lacrimosa.
Overall, Dolce Joya delivers on every spectacle from solo to full band arrangements, combining inspiration and a comfort of knowing herself that almost transcends the album. This album is a fan of those with an interest of classical music and soothing sound pieces.
