The beautiful songs featured on “Now The Silence” are very contemplative and remarkably beautiful, featuring arpeggios, seemingly floating into the air. There is also room for some strings as well as some colorful and emotional arrangements bringing so much focus and depth to the compositions, while still allowing the piano to be the main focus here. This is a fantastic album that sets the bar higher, going for a very simple, yet strikingly beautiful creative formula. If you are a fan of score-type music, neoclassical composers, and generally, great instrumentals with a mellow vibe, this one is going to be right up your alley.”

Juan Sánchez’s music is only a sonic experience that very few could try to recreate. He manages to paint a picture and tells a thousand words, all through the poignancy and stillness of his piano. The tracks on ‘Now The Silence’ sit at a beautiful crossroads between the awe of Sánchez’s instrumental skills and artistic storytelling. Yes – in an album that doesn’t have any spoken words, listeners can still feel a vivid story being told through Sánchez’s lens. A true musical journey from start to finish, ‘Now the Silence’ is chilling, haunting, peaceful, relaxing and ethereal all at the same time.”

NOW THE SILENCE is a relaxing album filled with the sounds of soothing piano. The songs together sound like a story being told and make the listener reflect. It can help the listener to focus on the things we take for granted; or on the things they always wanted to accomplish. The album covers moments of hope as well as despair. ‘Now The Silence’ truly embodies the importance of listening to the silence. Composed as Juan Sánchez had to spend time alone like many others during this time, it holds all the weight of being able to gain from deep and, sometimes uncomfortable, reflection.”

Many artists complain that the second album is hard, but Juan Sánchez’s ‘Now the Silence’ flows effortlessly. ‘Rebirth’ was a fantastic debut, but ‘Now the Silence’ is even better. It shows that Juan Sánchez is an artist for the future; He will only need a hit or two to become a household name among New Age music fans worldwide.”

Juan Sánchez is back on the scene with yet another masterful piano release. His new studio work is titled “Now The Silence” and it showcases a distinctive approach to melodies and arrangement, defining Juan’s style in a very unique way. Hailing from Barcelona, this talented composer and musician managed to create a sound that feels incredibly personal and expressive, often blurring the lines between different aesthetics and genre definitions, but still staying true to his mood and intention as a pianist and music composer in the contemporary neoclassical wave. Ultimately, this is a fantastic album, in which the piano takes the leadership role, adorned by other beautiful instruments, such as strings and other ambient sounds. I would definitely recommend this to any fan of beautifully contemplative instrumental music.”

Review of the album “Now The Silence” by TheBandCampDiaries music blog

Long-time favorite and categorically one of our generation’s most compelling and inspiring creatives – Juan Sánchez explores the topically relevant impact of enforced solitude and quiet time with this superb and aptly titled album “Now The Silence”. This album, as much so as silence itself, provides a powerful catalyst for reflecting on precisely these aspects of existence. It puts the breaks on, so to speak, and allows us time to breath, to cry, to be grateful. Undoubtedly a stand-out project from this tumultuous year – and one well worth checking back in with throughout the years to come. ”
