ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“(Poeta) is, indeed, a lovely and personable CD with music for everyone to enjoy.”
--Sue Few - KRBS Radio

“...dig in to the feast. This is delicious peaceful music that would be at home as a meditation accompaniment as well as a soundtrack.”
--RadioMike

“Al's created an amazing musical experience on this CD.”
--Pete Havey - Mystic Soundscapes Radio



While Al's debut album 'Shadows' took us on a journey searching within one's own deepest self, POETA invites the listener on a different journey, exploring a landscape of emotions woven by the poetry of music through eleven magical tracks.

Travel through musical valleys and peaks to discover Orpheus and his unrelenting quest to retrieve his lost love in the haunting opening track 'Quest for Orpheus.' Dream along with the tales of Homer's 'Iliad.' Find yourself wishing for 'Evangeline,' the young Victorian maiden, to find true love as she sits by the sea, day after day with her book of poems. And then find that true love in the movement of 'Danzante' and the power of 'Abstract Desire.' Feel the quill of 'Poeta' inspire the world through a tapestry of enchantment. And, as every book must end, feel yourself transported with the final rendering 'Epilogos' and its timeless prayer.

From the first note to the last, Al Conti's album features ethnic instruments such as the hurdy gurdy, udu, sitar and tablas as well as classical violins and cellos, haunting ambient vocals and beautiful guitar solos.
