Review by ZowieZiggy
2 stars The short discography of this band is difficult to follow. This album was released in 1992 (and is their latest one), but all songs were recorded in 1974. Originally, these were meant to be a soundtrack and you can feel so when listening to this album.

There are no highlights here. Music goes from pastoral and tranquil moods (for most of it) to some jazzy parts. At times the flute kept me awaken (I am a flute maniac as you might know) but very few (two) songs are really worth.

The whole of this album sounds really like the same stuff. Since it is almost an all instrumental album, their Italian origins can't really be appreciated. Even if at times, some delicate and typical breaks will shine; like during "Eftus". But this is already the tenth track from this album (out of twelve).

The start of "Favole Antiche" is a total "Epitaph" rip off. It is the first song with vocals and also the longest one from this album. By far the most achieved number (a real song actually). Very smooth and quiet. I can't find a closer inspiration than the very early and symphonic KC to compare this song. Some improv as well, but organized I should say. Interesting.

Both "Eftus" and "Favole Antiche" are featured on another of their album ("Principe Di Un Giorno") but in a different version. So, there is really no reason to get hold of this one.

Two stars. Sorry for the ones who have posted five stars rating (but with no comment).

3 stars In February 74' Celeste recorded another work, intended to become the soundtrack of a movie by Enry Fiorini, entitled ''I suoni in una sfera''.All tracks were composed by Ciro Perrino, while Celeste were helped by Marco Tudini on sax, flutes and percussion.No reference about the movie around net indicates that this film was never published, propably this was the reason the album of Celeste also never saw the light at the time.However it was released in 1992 on the established Mellow Records label of Mauro Moroni and Ciro Perrino, which counted just one year of life at that point.

This was another beautiful and ethereal offering of pastoral Italian Prog by Celeste, where the light Classical melodies are surrounded by dreamy folky references, sometimes quite close to PANGEA's ''Invasori'' album.The original soundtrack appears to consist of the first nine and very short tracks of ''I suoni in una sfera''.Instrumental, mellow and symphonic oriented Progressive Folk, characterized by nice acoustic textures, calm sax leads and smooth flute melodies, that often becomes very dramatic with the clever use of synthesizers, harsichord and some more dark keyboard soundscapes.The only vocals around are a couple of emotional choir lines, but the music will reward the listener with plenty of intense and atmospheric moments.The last three tracks appear to have been composed by Perrino, Schiaviollini and Lagorio, propably as bonus material and not originally intended to become part of the movie's soundtrack.Stylistically though these are on par with the rest of the album, maybe a bit closer to PREMIATA FORNERIA's MARCONI unique vibes.These feature long acoustic passages with tremendous flute parts, a great sax and violin solo and strong keyboards lines in evidence, resulting to three pieces of relaxed, jazzy Italian Symphonic Rock for fans of atmospheric soundscapes.

This originally unreleased album of Celeste just strengthens the image of the group, which should have been one of the most consistent and professional acts of the time.Propably a bit lightweight for fans of more energetic listenings, still ''I suoni in una sfera'' has its own power through this ethereal, instrumental approoach.Strongly recommended...3.5 stars.
