SPRING

Spring is a solo piano album made of six compositions.
There are many things that inspired me to write those melodies, my deep love for nature, my sweet wife and, of course, the arrival of our first daughter Francesca.
Many scenes, melodic lines and passages have been inspired by the long afternoons spent playing with Francesca. Becoming a father is a very special moment in life, and it has given me the right energy to go back to playing and recording.
This is my first release, so I wanted to record a great piano sound, so I chose to record in Tuscany in a Recording Studio where I could play a very beautiful Steinway & Sons Piano.
Recorded and mastered at OSB Studio, Florence, Italy, April 17-18, 2018
Piano: Steinway & Sons Model B
Microphones: AKG C414 XLII
Release Date: 05/16/2018
Photography: Vincenzo Romagnoli
Graphic Design: Gianluca Di Santo

Spring

This is the first piano solo song I wrote. A homage to nostalgia which is changing but which never stops accompanying my thoughts and memories of what was.
And that which was, in Spring, is childhood. The nature of tree-lined avenues, of springs which talk about rebirth, joy and adolescence.

Dance for France

To my first daughter. To the many evenings spent together. To her passion for the ballet. I dedicate everything to her.

Tema della foresta

I have never forgotten a trip I made to Switzerland when I was a boy. Long walks in the woods were something new for me and physically hard for a boy used to life in the city. But direct contact with the most intimate nature, scents and magical atmospheres of the forests I visited was an incredible discovery which marked my soul.

Giocando io e te

Here is my tribute to growth. To years gone by with the finest fruit of the path, of what we are. To children and their infancy that involve you in a lucid aspect of rare gentleness, that wrap you in a priceless company.

 

Wife and wine

A jazz ballad. A re-visitation in music of the moments of reflection and complicity. Of pleasant afternoons spent in the company of someone who supports you in life. A companion, a glass of wine.

 

Winter day

Spring is born again. But that which precedes it knows how to preserve and protect an identical fascination. Intimacy, warmth, even meditation. Winter is the homage to it.
