Pianist/composer Luca Aletta soars with cinematic flair on new album
(Published: October 05, 2016)

Cinematic. Grandiloquent. Transcendent. Those are some of the words that can be used to summarize pianist/composer Luca Aletta's new album Il Dodicesimo Nano.

The aria "Lo Sguardo Triste Di Una Portoghese Malinconica" is a melancholic beauty. Think of the thread that connects Sting's The Soul Cages, The Vampire Lestat, and the mood swings of a Sicilian afternoon. The song moves thoughtfully with delicate piano progressions that slowly build to a caprice, manic and urgent at the same time.

The title track takes the depression of spirits down a
notch. Think of the bleakest winter with occasional glimpses of the sun's muted rays. The sparse instrumentation is masterfully crafted in all too brief life span of 2:39.

It's not all is gloom and doom though. "Il Ciclista" is unusual in its playful ways. Imagine Michael Corleone and Buster Keaton in jazz and classical throes while, alternately, all mayhem breaks loose and settles into an easy groove. Whimsical brilliance at the fore.
