"While I am playing piano, I can't know when a piece is turning into a song it would belong to a future new album. Except at the end, when silence finalizes the trance, and I think; oh, the microphones have registered it! My master used to say, on the lighted stage or in front of the awaken microphones, dream! Don't be really there while you improvise, then you will make your audience dream as well." - Bruno Sanfilippo

I first discovered Bruno Sanfilippo back in 2007, when this Galvani Conservatory (Buenos Aires) musical composition graduate released Piano Textures on his very own AD21 label which he co-runs with Max Corbacho since 1998. I somehow missed the second volume of Piano Textures which came out in 2009, but I am extremely grateful to Sanfilippo for furnishing the third! And if this is your first encounter with this Spanish composer, I’m happy to point you towards a limited and signed box set edition of all three volumes! But back to music. The subdued sequentially titled pieces explore the depth and multitude of textures that, to my continued amazement, can be extracted from the instrument. There is lyricism, elegance and poise in every single track, balanced with just a touch of post-processing with slight reverb and delay. The atmospheres are colorful and bright, at times complimented with field recordings of water, singing birds and strings. The eight compositions are rather lengthy in time, with most passing over the six-minute mark, allowing the listener to get fully engrossed in the melody, structure and sound. “My master used to say,” quotes Sanfilippo on the liner notes of the album, “on the lighted stage or in front of the awaken microphones, dream! Don’t be really there while you improvise, then you will make your audience dream as well.” I will surely take that advice…
Bruno Sanfilippo "Piano Textures 3" CDThe third installment of "Piano Textures" has became a reality during September 2012. I won't say anything new when describing Bruno Sanfilippo, in Argentina born, but residing in Barcelona, Spain, as one of the leading figures of the ambient movement in Europe. Released not only as a solo digipak CD, but also as one third of elegantly packaged "Piano Textures" Box Set along with digipak reissues of previous two chapters, "Piano Textures 1" and "Piano Textures 2". Looking for some nice collector's item? This might be one of your choices for sure!!! Anyway, let's explore now the atmospheres of "Piano Textures 3", which consists of 8 parts entitled "Piano Textures". The album unfolds soothingly with minimal, but expressive piano tune backed by captivating natural sounds of bird calls or cow bells. It's no secret that Bruno Sanfilippo is enormously gifted piano player, who studied at The Galvani Conservatory in Buenos Aires with a degree in musical composition. And Bruno Sanfilippo truly excels at his filigree piano playing!!! "Piano Textures 3 II" is deeply intimate and evocative composition hazed by the clouds of profound sadness and nostalgia. Deliberately serene and touching!!! Warm piano ambience invade "Part III" and floats smoothly through various passages, ranging from more melodious and illuminating to more quiet and contemplative with strong cinematic feel, what a beauty!!! "Part IV" blends euphorically swirling phases with more intense, throughout saturated by distant natural sounds. Beautifully sad "Part V" immerses deeply each listener with its emotionally rich piano texture, weeping cello sounds and tranquil ocean waves, at the end joined by child's voices. This composition impresses utterly with its nostalgia, intimacy and warmness. Long forgotten memories are awakening, another masterpiece!!! Beautifully relaxing moods are all over the next piece, "Part VI", this time restful and fragile piano is strongly flavored by myriad of forest birds chirping and few kids voices and dog barks. When absorbed by this composition, naturally colored "BIOMA" comes to my mind. Towards the end few harsher scrapings à la "Urbs" appear as well. And some of these sharper outbursts and low deep sounds can be explored also on "Part VII", with sort of cacophonous intro that is soon softened by euphorically shimmering and lush piano. I like so much the interplay of harsher and velvety parts, it might sound quite perplexing, but the overall feel remains always very sensitive and poignant. Sparsely elegant and strikingly picturesque piano texture of "Part VIII" is again carefully enriched by few nostalgic cello sounds to complete this grand finale composition. Freely meandering and dreamlike, absolutely gracious and gorgeous!!! "Piano Textures 3" is a lyrical performance at its most virtuoso!!! It's absolutely thrilling to witness how Bruno Sanfilippo demonstrates his amazing versatility within ambient genre, always marked with highly sophisticated approach and equipped with massive potential. Just take into account, for example, his last five releases, "Piano Textures 3", "Urbs", "BIOMA" (with Max Corbacho), "Subliminal Pulse" and "CROMO" (with Mathias Grassow). Without any doubt, he is one of the giants in the genre, a composer of great artistry and talent, because otherwise he wouldn't be able to reach this challenging and refined quality. Bravissimo, Maestro, and muchas gracias for all your sonic pearls, I am deeply honored to collect them!!!Richard Gürtler (Nov 03, 2012, Bratislava, Slovakia)
