2016 "Classical" Album of the Year Winner / SoloPiano.com

In the early 2010, I decided to make an experiment of creating a piano album via Facebook. After every struck of inspiration for a particular musical theme, I recorded it in my studio and shared it on my Facebook wall. Each piece of music was commented by my Facebook friends. I chose the most popular improvisations for the album according to their likes and comments. Because of my interaction with the listeners online I eventually came up with the project title, a certain word play: I named it “My Face Music Book”. Before the official release of the album, I decided to share the complete album with my Facebook friends and then something beautiful happened: Sasa Cetkovic, the photographer with whom I was only a "virtual friend" then, decided to give me a selection of his artistic photographs he was inspired to choose after listening to my album. He named each photo with the names of my compositions. All of these photos are included in this edition, along with the video “My Piano” that I authored and directed. This CD also comes with the musical scores of all improvisations, except that of the bonus track entitled "In the sea the sound", that I wanted to include in order to complete the circle: It is my piano improvisation recorded back in 1975 when I was six years old.

Meštrović climbed to the throne of the elected with this album, of those who lead us through dreams with their music that you listen as a privilege or you take it as a remedy against the cruel reality.

Početkom 2010. godine odlučio sam se na svojevrsni eksperiment
stvaranja klavirskog albuma putem Facebooka. Naime, svaki put nakon što bih dobio inspiraciju za određenu glazbenu temu, te bih ju u studiu snimo na klaviru, podijelio sam ju na svom profilu. Uz svaki naslov, dolazili su i komentari mojih "virtualnih" prijatelja, te sam nakon završetka cijelog materijala zahvaljujući tim komentarima izabrao improvizacije koje su im se najviše svidjele. S vremenom, smislio sam i naslov projekta, kao određenu igru riječi, upravo zahvaljujući interakciji s drugim slušateljima na mreži
"My Face Music Book".
Prije službenog objavljivanja albuma, "podijelio" sam kompletan album sa svim improvizacijama na Facebooku i tada se dogodilo još nešto predivno. Fotograf Saša Četković (s kojim sam do tada bio samo "virtualni prijatelj") nakon što je preslušao cijeli album, po svojoj inspiraciji poslao mi je odabir njegovih autorskih fotografija, koje je nazvao upravo po naslovima glazbe. Sve fotografije sada se nalaze i na ovom izdanju, uključujući i spot “My Piano” kojeg potpisujem kao scenarist i redatelj. Uz ovaj CD takodjer dobivatei kompletno notno izdanje sa svim improvizacijama, osim Bonus Tracka pod naslovom “U moru šum”, s kojim sam žeilo u potpunosti zaokružiti ovaj projekt, budući da se radi također o improvizaciji snimljenoj 1975. kada sam imao šest godina.

Ovim albumom Meštrović se popeo na prijestolje izabranih da nas vodi kroz snove svojom glazbom koja se sluša kao privilegija ili pak upija kao lijek protiv sirove stvarnosti. "
