ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Divine Comedy is without doubt the greatest masterpiece of literature of any time which carries us with sweetness in the splendid light of divine secrets. And it is in this context that the characters and situations described in The Divine Comedy, gave me deep emotions which I transmitted into my music.

The symphony n° 6: “The Divine Comedy” consists of 7 movements.

The 1st Movement - 1st Canto of Inferno
The departure of Dante towards the unknown through forests as he listens to birds singing before entering the cave which leads him into the Inferno. “Half-way of one’s life I found myself being in a dark forest and having lost the right way.”

The 2nd Movement - 4th Canto of Inferno
The souls of Limbo implore Dante to remember their own positions when he goes to Paradise because they have not known Christendom and so they have not received baptism and find themselves in a situation of uncertainty.

The 3rd Movement - 5th Canto of Inferno
One of the most famous in the Divine Comedy concerning the tragic love of Paola and Francesco. Their great love ends in tragedy as it was not allowed in those times and they were found out. The music tries to capture the scene as the two lovers gaze into each other’s eyes.

The 4th Movement - 15th Canto of Inferno
Dante meets one of his friends who predicts that he will be driven out of Florence. I took poetic licence and imagined that Dante, with great sorrow and homesickness, leaves his beloved Florence.

The 5th Movement - 30th Canto of Purgatory
Dante meets his sweet Beatrice and is so trilled that he faints upon seeing her. The music tries to express this encounter through a joyful tempo matching the circumstances.

The 6th Movement - 33rd and last Canto of Paradise
There is the Hymn to the Mother Virgin, one of the most beautiful verses in the Canti, sparking great emotions. At the end of the Canto Dante looks up to heaven and is dazzled by the light of God.

7th Movement - 33rd and last Canto of Paradise
He succeeds to see the divine secret. He faints and when he opens his eyes he sees the stars and here comes the famous sentence - “and we came out and saw again the stars” with which the symphony ends.
