Pavla Mikulasova is a talented artist hailing originally from the Czech Republic. She has been playing piano and singing for most of her life and here we introduce her music project with a couple of reviews including her studio album Mirror and latest single Respirare.



Respirare - Review

This haunting new single is a brand new song, previously unreleased on any album, so it's nice to have something brand new from this talented artist. Respirare The piece is beautiful and haunting as she chooses to focus on the more ethereal and neo-classical side of her music, letting the piano and her vocals captivate the listener across the 4 1/2 minute piece. As a pianist I have a soft spot for beautiful piano compositions and this one is definitely a great selection with great dynamics and sound. It's amazing how such a simple structure can be so enchanting with just the piano and vocals on this piece. This is definitely a new favorite track from Pavla for me, it's simple, beautiful and unique, something listeners should really enjoy.

Rating: 5/5



Mirror - Review

Introducing the spellbinding debut album from the talented Pavla Mikulasova. Mirror Released in the summer of 2012, this album really showcases the beautiful voice and excellent musical talents from this artist. The album spans a dozen beautiful tracks including the previously released single Timeless.

The music is based on the foundation of neo-classical piano but includes a number of various arrangements and diverse instruments, at times picking up the pace and intensity with the addition of various synths, guitars and percussion. The album as a whole is great to listen to from start to finish, it is well orchestrated and mixed as the music segues well from track to track.

There are several favorite tracks worth highlighting here to give the reader an idea of what to expect when they pick up this album. It kicks off beautifully with an up-beat piece "Anonymous Day" which has a bit of a new age feel to it with the style of percussion and guitar used, however the piano and soft vocals keep it anchored with a soft ethereal feel. The piano really becomes the instrument of choice and the anchor to this album as we drift along from piece to piece. "Desaparecidos" stands out as a beautiful, minimalistic piece focusing mostly on the soft, angelic vocals with the music accenting and carrying them deep into the listener's heart. As the album starts to wind down, we drift off into a couple of spellbinding pieces, first with "The Magic Mirror", building on a fantasy theme with music that goes along well with it, just a touch of Tangerine Dream as if from the soundtrack to the movie "Legend", yet with beautiful shoegazer, shimmering guitars as the background. And to bring the album to a close we're presented with the captivating single "Timeless". The soft, somber symphonic synths create a beautiful ambient mood and background to Pavla's siren-like vocals.

It's not all about sweet, delicate and angelic pieces though. A set of haunting pieces break the mold a bit with a darker mood and style across "Grandmother", "The Little Angels" and "Lullaby" and this is followed by the inclusion of guest male vocals on "Overdose" continuing on with the darker sound and on through "Sweet Dreams" as well with haunting piano and grinding guitar riffs.

That's it in a nutshell, fans of a mix of new age and neo-classical music should enjoy this album. For those familiar with Priscilla Hernandez also here on the pages of Gothic Paradise, and you enjoy her music, I think you'll love this work.
