<<  -- 3 --  Keith Bramich    Beautiful and convincing


Two tracks are from Fiume di Musica (River of Music), a 'wandering concert on the Tiber' produced by Milesi and Daniele Abbado for the opening of the 1993 Roma Europa Festival. In Volta Riflessi [listen -- track 2, 2:52-3:55], three boats move gently upstream, the river bridges providing natural boundaries between and barriers for the different sonorities, which range from church bells, tarantella and African rhythms to fireworks. A beautiful concept, this, working well, aurally.

Fuochi sul Tevere from the same festival is the most up-beat piece on the disc -- synthesised music and sound effects bordering on pop.

Rather scanty booklet information, but nicely presented.
