4 stars I've really fallen for this album. The keyboardist is clearly a virtuoso and plays pretty much all piano throughout, although he does play some string-synths on a couple of tracks and some electric piano as well. It's kind of weird but I really feel proud when I listen to this album. Maybe because this is a great example of the music I love, I don't know ?

"La Corte Di Hon" opens with a perfect example of how good this piano player is. We get a full sound a minute in when drums arrive. Vocals follow.Piano, drums and vocals lead the way until some beautiful guitar melodies arrive 2 1/2 minutes in. Nice. "Canto" is my favourite song on here. I love the sound of the piano, cymbals and guitar to open. They create a nice soundscape but we don't really get a melody until after a minute. Vocals 1 1/2 minutes in. This sounds so amazing ! The piano and drum melody with vocals over top is heavenly. We get some rare electric piano to follow. Some nice guitar 4 minutes in. "Aristea" is led by drums, piano and guitar once again. String-synths come in before the vocals arrive 2 minutes in. When the vocals come in the sound changes. It's not as good but we do get some tasteful guitar 3 1/2 minutes in along with some good bass. Drums, piano and bass to end it.

"Ljalja" is my second favourite track on here. It opens with more incredible piano as bass and drums help out.Guitar after a minute as bass throbs. I love the sound of the guitar. The vocals 2 minutes in are fantastic ! String-synths follow. The pace picks up after 4 minutes with guitar,bass and drums. It calms back down 5 minutes in with those great vocals again. "Ritorno" opens with piano followed by a vocal section before piano returns. Vocals come back with harmonies. Guitar 3 1/2 minutes in and later at 5 minutes when it is even better. It picks up the pace before 6 minutes with piano and drums leading the way. Electric piano makes an appearance 6 1/2 minutes in before the piano comes back to end it.

A must have for fans of Italian music. Beautiful music.
