Album Notes
Alex Carpani has collaborated with David Jackson (Van der Graaf Generator), Aldo Tagliapietra (Le Orme), Paul Whitehead (Genesis, VdGG, etc.), Tony Spada (Steve Morse, Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe, etc.) among others.
He's a versatile keyboardist and composer who has expressed his musical sensitivity in several music genres: progressive rock, symphonic music, electronic music, music for films/video, music for theatre plays, music and poetry, etc.
The Alex Carpani Band (ACB) has been formed in fall 2006 to perform live Alex's debut album "Waterline" around the world. It is now one of the top Italian progressive rock bands of the contemporary scene and has an International experience having performed in Italy, England, Sweden, U.S.A., Lithuania, Norway, Mexico, Denmark, Germany, France and Serbia since its live debut in 2007.

"After the enormous success of the first album and a worldwide extra successful tour, the second album by this genial keyboardist-composer. One of the best RPI symphonic prog albums, ever"

"With one foot rooted in the past and one firmly in the future Alex Carpani has produced a superb concept album with The Sanctuary. There is some superb old school symphonic keyboard playing and a number of additional keyboard swirls and changing time signatures which always keep you guessing"

"The composition and arrangements by Alex Carpani are simply perfect, it's evident we're before a musician who has very much to offer. Alex Carpani simply gets mad with his keyboards, hitting us with all he has, the only word I can say is outstanding"

"...the musical style retains the pure late 70s Progressive Rock, with touchs of the European Symphonic Prog Rock groups. We are talking about a complete musical orchestration including, elaborate arrangements of which consist of very tasteful intrumental. In fact, I´m talking about Alex Carpani, a versatile composer and keyboard player..."

"Italian keyboard virtuoso Alex Carpani surely knows his fundamentals, and "The Sanctuary" consists of ten heavy keyboard-laden prog rock songs that borders with symphonic rock"
