Classical improvisations by pianist Andrea Cavallo, from the calm and serene to the passion and fire in every Italian heart. Eroica Clssical Recording artist Andrea Davallo dedicates these 14 songs to celebrities he admires and the Italian movies most dear to his heart, inclusing Odes to the great jazz pianist Nill Evans, singer and song writer Joanie Mitchell, and three fabulous Italian movies, including Cinema Paradiso. In the words of the artist: 'All of the music on this CD is improvised, from the first to the last note. All of these various sounds arise from different factors, like: searching for a sound which instantly comes to mind, or one that evolves from the casual result of performing ... looking at your hands while playing, for example, as you wait for a new expression, or a repetition. Or a change in texture or dynamics, caused by the need of making ideas flow into the making of a particular sound which comes from that piano in that music hall. The aim is to capture the unrepeatable moment, and to let the audience, along with the performer, discover the music ... note after note after note, as a proof of the performer/composer's willingness and ability to take the risk of producing that unique kind of exhilaration that arises from instantaneous, improvisational composition. Here, there is simply a man with his piano, who is playing and improvising. Always. Notes by Andrea Cavallo.
