Sven B. Schreiber "Erewhon" predates "The glass tear" by about one year, and is basically in the same vein - which is a good thing, because I regard the latter as a highlight of Italian symphonic rock. The music on this album is quiet, balanced, soothing, and melodic. No dull distracting riffs, no acrobatic gimmicks - just pure beauty, skillfully composed and arranged. Favorite track: Dreams' hunters (pt 2).

about

NOTTURNO CONCERTANTE is an Italian band, named after a musical piece by Carulli, a XIX-century Italian composer.
This is Italian neo-prog with influences from MARILLION, IQ and PENDRAGON.
They use of acoustic guitar adds a richness to their music.
Dreamy melodies and folky references were always in the band's menu, but on ''Erewhon'' these elements have a special place with
the acoustic guitars being constantly used and the overall style
being a very soft Progressive Rock.
Musically ''Erewhon'' offers nine short tracks of melodic and
calm -mainly Neo- Progressive Rock with strong acoustic breaks, smooth piano lines and dreamy synthesizers in a very relaxing mood.
Inspired by the events of "Tangentopoli" and the passive attitude
of the Italians in the face of these dramatic events.
The cover of Riccardo Mannelli, designer of the magazine "Cuore".
Recommended, especially for fans of Neo Prog and
pastoral Folk Rock.
