Serge Tolstov, aka. Stendahl, is a Russian Moscow-based musician. Smooth jazz and melodic electronica influenced his childhood and became a strong influence on his own music. Stendahl is a professional piano player with a deep passion for the instrument - emotional perceptual piano touch can be noticed in almost each piece of his music. Stendahl is not prone to produce the sound that belongs to a particular style always trying to mix genres by adding chill breaks in breakdowns with abovementioned piano insertions, charming strings and pads that culminate in trance drops with massive synth chords. Elements that can for sure intrigue a listener and give him space to think, dream, dance and eventually do what music was generally created for – to enjoy every moment of our life. Stendahl has been composing for a decade but it was not until 2013 he decided to share his music.
