Dear friends and supporters,
while I’m still re-releasing my works featuring the artwork by the British designer Vaughan Oliver, today the album “Ensemble” marks the third appointment in this summer campaign.
This album was my attempt to transpose on CD what was my back then live set. It also was the starting point of my previous label Stella Recordings, a place where I took the pleasure of producing hand made and numbered limited CD editions in a special Japanese-like style (just for you to know, something in the same style will come back soon on 2020 Editions as well).
The Belgian label Brooklyn Bridge Records also produced this album on a lush 2×10″ deluxe vinyl set, featuring the artwork by Japanese legend Shinro Ohtake and a stunning design by Vaughan Oliver.
You can still buy a copy of the vinyl deluxe edition here.
“Ensemble” features the first version of my string trio, with Simone Soro at the violin, Giulia Dessy at the viola and Gianluca Pischedda at the cello.
You can watch a five tracks video of a concert in Dordrecht (Netherlands) from this period here.
Last but not least, this album features “Nana”, a composition by the Spanish composer Manuel De Falla (1876-1946), a wonderful music I will always dearly love.
Thank you very much for your support
Stefano / 2020 Editions
