Music: Dmitriy Malikov
Director: Igor Shmelev
In the bustle and hustle of everyday life, it takes an effort to stop and listen to the gentle flow of music and to your own voice…Yet such effort is richly rewarded when you can feel the music respond to you, perhaps arousing an emotion that has been desperately missing. That's when you realize that the world is still filled with harmony, kindness, and love.Buy the album Learn more

1Deeply in thoughts Before use, advise everybody not to disturb you
Guidelines for use: Close your eyes before commencing
The orderly path,
With a sojourn...
2About the rush Consume fast, without water
Guidelines for use: Consume fast, without water
Houses, shops all whiz in front of my eyes.
And I am busy flickering
In deep and shallow puddles.
3About the past Close your eyes before commencing
Guidelines for use: Close your eyes before commencing
I search in my mind for those trapped inside,
Those whom I cannot forgive.
How could you do such things to me?
I cry, and the tears fall silently and melt,
For they do not flow from the days of past
Into the days of present.
4About the impossible Press start after yet another failed attempt to do something else
Guidelines for use: Press start after yet another failed attempt
to do something else
In this world of powerful people,
Renouncing the omnipotence,
I say goodbye to the imaginary power
And meet the real one.
5With a breath of music Use before bedtime, while taking a deep breath
Guidelines for use: Use before bedtime, while taking a deep breath
Suddenly, it seems there has never been
That which comforted and protected before.
I have blamed myself, I have eradicated my tracks,
But don't - the music whispered quietly...
6To the happy ones Recommended to listen with a smile on your face
Guidelines for use: Recommended to listen with a smile on your face
To see the world through happy eyes -
It's not the same as being blinded with the headlights:
You cannot dim the brightness,
But happy are those who have been illuminated by the light.
7I become After the morning alarm goes off, turn on immediately before getting out of bed
Guidelines for use: After the morning alarm goes off, turn on immediately before getting out of bed
Sloughing off the skin
All my roles, titles, accolades,
I start to look like a true self
Before all the victories and recognitions.
8The shadow leaves Attention! Wearing a hat is mandatory
Guidelines for use: Attention! Wearing a hat is mandatory
When peace has found comfort in me,
The day shines over my head in the noontide
It's strange but shadow leaves at times from such serenity
It always happens
No matter day and time…
I have been dreaming -
And shadow left under the whisper of expressions,
A slow narrative of piano keys
But I stayed.
9The soul is filled Total time to fill up a soul: 2 min 54 sec
Guidelines for use: Total time to fill up a soul: 2 min 54 sec
When you share with me
Your warmth and kindness
That joy coddles inside of me
And overflows my soul with affection.
Perhaps you may wonder,
While flying in the whirlwind of tenderness -
Defying the laws of physics,
That you can gain only by giving something.
10Fresh The maximum effect is attained by listening in a forest or park

by listening in a forest or park
I breathe in the world through my lungs,
And I get dizzy from the freshness,
Now the thoughts of profound befriend
The thoughts of giddy.
11I am alive This composition is intended for those who are tired, and it provides a revitalizing effect.
Guidelines for use: This composition is intended for those who are tired,

I have noticed only recently
That life goes on inside of me uninterrupted
And when I feel alone and sad
I'm as alive as I was mere five minutes ago
When I was happy about something
12I am happy In case of overdose you may experience euphoria
Guidelines for use: In case of overdose you may experience euphoria
I trust the force that breathes in me,
That’s why I chose a random path.
Anything that comes to pass
Transpires to make me happy.
The desirable finds me by itself
And things that happen, they just happen!

Guidelines for use: Possesses a harmonizing effect,
duration of action 10-12 hours
Triumphantly welcoming the day
I bid a smooth farewell to the morning
I cherish each minute for its uniqueness.
Unflappable and so striking
The evening is flaring up afar
The end is near…But don't despair
Until tomorrow, until next morning, until next time.
Throughout the creation of this album, I have strived to make it as light and airy as possible. That is why the pieces are not filled with the abundance of musical instruments, and instead feature the most important instrument of my life, the grand piano! I hope that through its vibrating strings you will feel the delicate strings of my soul, and through its beating mallets you will hear the sounds of my heart.
"Panacea" is a new album of piano music released by Dmitry Malikov as part of the "Pianomania" creative project. Each individual musical piece in the album helps the listener to release emotional stress, relax, and achieve inner harmony.
The album title and the concept of its design can be perceived as rather provocative. After all, Panacea is a Greek goddess of universal remedy. In ancient Greece, it was widely believed that music can create a certain mood and harmonize the state of mind. In fact, Pythagoras of Samos recommended music as a panacea for the ailing body and soul. Individual compositions that comprise the album have received unusual names. Together they form a small poem that places you in a special mood for the listening.
Dmitry had been working on the new creation for over a year. For the first time in his career, the recording of the album was done outside a professional studio, with Dmitry at home, playing his favorite Steinway D-274 grand piano.
Initial reviews reveal that the "musical medicine" created by Dmitry Malikov does not merely supply aesthetic pleasure. The music brings peace to one's soul, inner harmony, and an endless flow of positive energy. Follow the music, while focusing only on what is happening inside of you, and at some point you will feel that it leads you to this amazing bliss.
To experience the full magical effect of Dmitry's music by yourself, please take no less than two compositions a day.Extras: Dmitry Malikov website Pianomania website
What was the inspiration for this album? Well, a couple of things, or more accurately, three things… First, my new grand piano; second, an unstoppable desire to compose; and third, perhaps the most important, the unrelenting demands from my fans to give them new music. Thank you very much for that!
