about

this title is OUT OF STOCK !!!

After founding Finisterre, contributing as a major composer to
the their best works, writing and recording the complex and
very welcomed "Merlin - The Rock Opera", Fabio Zuffanti gives
new life to the Hostsonaten project. This band is an 'open' group
named after a very famous movie by Ingmar Bergman.
Hostsonaten represents Fabio's deepest love for jazz, folk,
progressive rock, and ethnic music.
The music here is mellow and folk tinged with plenty of flute from
the lovely Francesca Biagini, as well as lots of acoustic guitar and mellotron. The album opens with a short cover of a MUGEN song called "Sinfonia Della Luna Part 1".
MUGEN is a Japanese prog band by the way.
Hostsonaten (A Collection Of Autumnal Dances)" is the
centerpiece at 42 minutes in length. It's divided into seven
sections with vocals on three of them.
Hostsonaten (41:21)
i) Sunset
ii) Starfields
iii) Forest
iv) Ghosts Of Summer Evenings
v) Watersong
vi) Spirals
vii) Seascape
viii) Morning
Zuffanti made his miracle again.''Hostsonaten'' is a different
angle of his pure talent,mixing ethereal folk tunes with the
sound of grandiose symphonics to result another
beautifully-arranged gem of progressive rock.
A strongly recommended release for the whole
progressive rock audience.
