Aage Kvalbein

Italienske Mirakler VinylPurchased

Noone ever doubted that miracles happen in Italy. Here some of the world's most beautiful melodies were created, and the Italian soil has given growth for the greatest diversity of wines in the world. With Italian music on the repertoir, Aage Kvalbein has brought with him Elizabeth Norberg-Schulz, Rolf Lislevand, HÃ¥vard Gimse and Henning Sommerro to the wellknown Castello Banfi in Montalcino in Italy, for a CD recording. The idea was to open all senses to the wonders of day to day life in Italy. And to see the connection between the esthetic ideals in music and in wine. On this occasion it was Italian miracles in the shape of master pieces from the Renaissance up until today that rang from this picturesque thirteenth century castle in Tuscany. Monteverdi, Puccini, Pergolesi and Morricone are among the miracle men behind these famous melodies. They range from chamber music from the Middle Ages via famous Italian opera arias to "Gabriel's Obo" and other evergreens from today's Italian film music. This CD is the second in a series that started with French Miracles, released last year
