about

This is a very interesting CD actually with a great photo gallery, covering Malibran's journey through the ages, but also
musically the album stands quite strong.
Most of the unreleased tracks are either solo performances
by Scaravilli or products of the new reduced line-up and range
from melancholic Italian Symphonic Rock with smooth guitars,
flutes and keyboards to acoustic textures with a folky edge,
the quality is very nice and the compositions are really good.
For those not aware of the sound, imagine HOSTSONATEN
and FINISTERRE both on stage.
Some of the well-known Malibran's tracks like an
instrumental version of ''The wood of tales'' or
''La Stagione Del Re'' along with unknown material
have been captured live from early-90's and it is always
a good thing to listen to Malibran's delicate and dramatic
sound in a live performance, not to say that the
compositions are great.
The album contains also some cover songs like ''Rhayader''
by Camel, '' Cause We've Ended As Lovers'' by Jeff Beck or
even ''Bouree'' by Ian Anderson in an effort by Scaravilli to add
a slight Malibran flavor in these.
