Merveiles by Pablo Montanelli
On Saturday October 2, 2020, I woke up at my home in Saorge and discovered that storm Alex had passed through there and had destroyed almost everything in its path. Houses, roads, lives were washed away by the incredible current of the river. I discovered with horror the devastation that has disfigured the Royá and Vésubie valleys. These valleys are called Merveilles (Wonders). I settled down at the piano, and all these melodies sprang up under my fingers.
Merveilles is a CD that pays tribute to all those who work for reconstruction and who celebrate the resilience of nature, and the beings who inhabit it.
Composed and performed by Pablo Montanelli on piano in Saorge, France.
Mixed and mastered by Agustín Silberleib in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
