Mediterranea Song by Song
Sailing across the Mediterranean on board a sail boat, driven by the wind, in close contact with nature and with the more physical aspects of navigation, but without ever losing sight of the reasons that drive us to explore and experience it.
Golfo degli Angeli (Angels’ Gulf) is a large bay in southern Sardinia: this track, included in the “Mediterranea” compilation along with a dozen amazing piano pieces, describes the enchantement and the peacefulness of the view in the early hours of the morning.
“Isola dei Gabbiani” is a beautiful place in the North of Sardinia. A place where I use to go when I was a child. A beautiful and romantic place with one of the beautiful sunset and sunshine in the world.
The wind is one of my sounds. A solitary sound, perhaps, but relaxing, sweet, affectionate.
Sorrento is a solo piano composition in a contemporary style and with a nostalgic mood. It is a homage to the Italian little town of Sorrento, with its characteristic gulf and source of inspiration for many artists. In the end of the piece a timeless Italian song is quoted, Caruso by Lucio Dalla, who died in 2012.
I walk over the sea, almost touching the sky, while I feel the wind and the sun on my skin. The emotions of a walk in the North-West of Malta reported on the piano by Lorenzo Tempesti.
Take a walk on the old port of Biserta in Tunisia and all the ancient souls will come to visit and walk beside you.
A feeling of peace, away from the crowds and the summer hype … here is the winter sea, an airy piano improvisation in which to find the right rhythm of life.
I thought about something that moved in the water. So I thought a jellyfish was perfect and I chose the Aurelia Aurita, called also “quatrefoil jellyfish”, I hope it will be lucky!
Those wonderful sensations that come to mind when we are close to the sea and we observe it…with admiration, joy, respect, desire, and with the curiosity of a child.
Caprera is a beautiful small island in the archipelago of La Maddalena (North Sardinia). This song has been composed remembering a walk there at the end of the summer.
Tavolara is a beautiful island in northern Sardinia. In this soothing piano peace, Ebe the Antonio recalls the memory of the majestic view of the island from the sea. The track is included in the “Mediterranea” compilation, a beautiful collection of 13 piano pieces dedicated to the Mediterranean sea.
This is a song that is born by imagining who faces a journey towards a new life (metaphorical or real). Preparation, departure, adversity and finally salvation.
