Atmosfere celtiche (2015) In the 18 pieces on this album are found both the popular spirit of Celtic music: a) joyful dances and the physicality of rhythm element b) refinement and spirituality represented by the most poignant and contemplative melodies   with melancholy sighs and deep humanity. The meeting between the two dimensions accentuates the extraordinary character of universality of Celtic melodies that are infinitely many points of contact with the soul of any listener. Timeless because each time: Medieval and Renaissance, Baroque and classical, very old but thanks to an inexplicable alchemy, it turns out very modern. The same music through the centuries changing with the changing times and are able to renew itself decade after decade, to adapt to new tools, new technologies and new practices interpretative though never abandoning their spirit and archaic. Ancestrally close to our sensitivity, they also recognize elements of different cultures and geographically distant from each other (eastern, andean, etc ...).
