the music of "Hidden light" is taken from the popular Spanish
song "El noi de la mare".
the lyrics of "Il testamento dell'albero" are inspired by a poem
written by Trilussa.
Three years after the last NIGHT CONCERTANTE "The Glass Tear", Lucio Lazzaruolo publishes his solo project, it participates in the
whole ensemble that has always surrounded.
It is a work that filters the most romantic and intimate aspects of
his music, fusing folk and world music atmospheres, releasing them
in a gentle and elegant, rarefied and melancholy, with the cover of "Vision" and "Ice" (the beloved Hammill and Camel).
Numerous and notable literary citations (Benni Trilussa, the same Hammill), intriguing songs for guitar by Sor and Mertz ("Liebeslied"
and "Mouvement de prière religieuse").
A job for the melancholy and touching the gracefulness with which
it flows, for the happy inspiration, interesting booklet.
Album of singular elegance and class, built on the piano of Lucio
Lazzaruolo and the voice of Tonia Quarantiello.
