Progressive Biography

Age: 43 years old (November, 28 1968)

Homepage: (see note at the bottom)

Hi everybody!! I'm Lorenzo, a musician coming from Milan (Italy), fond of progressive music .As a symphonic composer and keyboardist from the Italian Prog band Lethe,I have participated several Prog Fests in Italy (The last two: that one at Vigevano Prog Fest 1996 outdoor;the other one at Blues House Prog Fest indoor, in the course of 1999, were our most famous gigs in Italy, regarding of the "progressive" concerts and generally European Prog Festivals). The first debut album (issued on 1993-94), entitled "Nymphae", was sold out in a few months; the second one entitled "Il Cavaliere Inesistente" , inspired by Italo Calvino's famous medieval novel, was not finished, as for an accident during the last recording session in our Recording Studio!!Anyway in the recent times I've just established a new ensemble within the Italian prog scene, helped by the bass player of the original band Lethe. I'm trying to comeback and perform a new gig in any existing European Prog Fest in the future, through the collaborations of new interesting musicians...and try to finish my job at our Recording Studio naturally, in order to let issue our best concept album!! I have been loving progressive rock and generally progressive music- coming from every place in the world - for over 25 years!! In coincidence with some new progressive issues from Italy,recently published, I like to remark all of them by means of my reviews here!!

Favorite bands/artists:
AFTER CRYING, ISILDURS BANE, ANGLAGARD, ECHOLYN (period regarding the issue of "Suffocating the Bloom"), RENAISSANCE (symphonic period), YES, CAMEL, UK (period regarding the issue of "Danger Money"), early GENESIS, SAGRADO CORACAO DA TERRA, GLASS HAMMER, HAMADRYAD, A TRIGGERING MYTH, ELP, TRIUMVIRAT (period regarding the issue of "Spartacus"),THE ENID, CLEARLIGHT, KANSAS ("progressive" period within the issue of "Leftoverture") and so on...

Note: the homepage indicated at the beginning of my profile is our temporary page (concerning the second band of Lethe's Bass Player)...the new homepage of Lethe will be edited in the future, as soon as our definitive line-up (difficult task) is settled...But on November,01 2009 the site regarding the new Lethe doesnt' exist anymore and the band as well!!
