REVIEWS ON
Ariella Uliano - TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE

The quintessential Italian album!
Famous words from the Italian language recited by major Italian actors and sung by light soprano Uliano. A must for any lover of Italian poetry !
James D., (an Englishman living in Toscana).

How LOVELY that 'voice' speaking ' Canto 5'; the prosody and music of his words.
Words I don't 'understand' and yet I feel My HEART does...
I love it when you sing in Italian MOST. espec'Arsi,Piansi ,Cantai'.yesYes your voice can convey great INNOCENCE. Gaiety too. Precious qualities greatly lacking in our noisy, flashy, pretentious world.
I also love greatly Renzo's piece. The guitar reminds me of 'Gysy Kings'.
Is it really him playing.... (Well done, Renzo. let's have MORE ! )
Anyway, it's a great TREAT!
Now 'He' is speaking again. Whoever is 'He' ?
do PLEASE let me have a translation of ALL he speaks.
Barbara R., London

Amazing, Amazing, Amazing!
After purchasing TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE, I played it non-stop for 3 days. Pure poetry to my ears, the lyrics and instrumentals are fantastic and send you to another world of calm and peace! Here a bunch of Italians from the Renaissance (notably Dante Alighieri, Gaspara Stampa and Lorenzo De' Medici) meet our Celtic and English ballads' heroes -in a fascinating pilgrimage across Europe.
If you do not have this Album then what are you waiting for - a must buy now CD!
S.K., Croydon, England

Well, I must say I am very captivated by your new CD: TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE…That's a lovely picture on the CD cover. Your smile brightens the scene as much as the ocean waters behind you. I shall guess that the picture was taken in Rio?
The music. You must understand that I am no professional critic, I know virtually nothing about music, other than I enjoy listening to all kinds of music.
I have only heard the first six tracks, just a few moments ago. But I want to write you immediately to say: I like it very much. In fact, the CD drew me in from the very first note of the guitar on the first track. Very compelling, sweet and interesting.
I was very surprised when I heard the jazzy tune, track 3, "I' MI TROVAI FANCIULLE UN BEL MATTINO". It's great fun and the man's voice in the song is wonderful. As we say in the radio business: "He has a great set of pipes." I love the saxophone. From my college days haunting jazz clubs in Boston, I'm thinking that's a tenor sax?
Richard U., Washington DC

It's such a bonus to hear on one CD songs that are sung both in Italian and also in English. So, I especially like to hear you sing "THE LOVER'S GHOST".
You sing so prettily and with such feeling. And I think that this song is a good example of one of the things I like about your music. While the song sounds simple and lovely, there is so much more to it, including its history, tradition, its story line and its meaning.
The accordion and the flute are wonderfully rich.
So I'm up to track six and I really like TANTO GENTILE very much. Thanks for it. I'll get many hours of listening enjoyment from it.
To me the measure of a strong CD is whether I want to listen again. I am very eager to hear the other seven tracks and I am also very eager to listen again to the first six.
TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE is really quite lovely…it’s wonderful, peaceful, inspirational music.
Richard U., Washington DC

Thanks for the CD TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE which turned up earlier today. I intended playing just a couple of tracks so that I could give you some feedback…. It's GREAT!!! I got so into it that I had to hear all of it. The music is fantastic and the arrangements are superb. I liked your previous CDs:
So, We'll Go No More A-Roving and The Wandering Spirit, but this one had such an immediate impact that I'll transfer it to my MP3 player so that I can play it on the move.
Paul, London

"Have just listened to Ariella's CD again TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE - really am enjoying it. I didn't realise initially that the songs were as old as they are - the arrangements are great and really seem to fit the original material well, though you'd never think they would. She's got an excellent voice and some extremely talented musicians around her. I thought all the arrangements were good, but have just re-listened to the avant-garde version of track 12 (SUMER IS I-CUMEN IN) again, terrific."
Jill, UK

EDITORIAL
TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE is translated into English as My Lady Looks So Gentle and So Pure, and it’s the title of a poem by Dante Alighieri from his collection dedicated to Beatrice.
It’s an apt title for the album, which is a blend of European music smoothly spanning the ages as well as countries, featuring Ariella Uliano, an Italian lady with a beautiful voice that glides effortlessly from Folk to Classical without any strain. On top of that she’s also a consummate finger style guitarist playing her own accompaniments, reminiscent of Victoria de Los Angeles.

Ariella's album has the added spice of a variety of excellent supporting musicians, notably Stefan Oslanski-Piano; Will Killeen-Slide and Acoustic Guitar; Andrea Trotti-Flute; Francesco Gualerzi-Saxophone; Adelmo Sassi-Electric Guitars ; Giuseppe Nieddu-Didjeridoo; Nicola Berti-Percussions and Johnny Sacco-Bass Guitar and Sound Engineer. Stefano Paiusco gives a superb reading of an excerpt from Dante’s Inferno; even if you don’t understand the language, Paiusco's voice will send shivers up your spine. The Italian actor also reads from the Renaissance poet Angelo Poliziano and his pupil Lorenzo De' Medici, concluding the programme with the famous CANZONA DI BACCO.

In Ariella's TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE, Dante's angelic vision of Beatrice and ghostly apparitions of Paolo and Francesca are set against a very English background. The CD booklet includes great pictures by Renzo Frontoni, Ariella’s partner, who also provides some interesting backing vocals.

MY LADY LOOKS SO GENTLE AND SO PURE (Dante Gabriel Rossetti's title for TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE) is a collection of 13 songs moving from the Italian Medieval to a touch of a Honky Tonk Piano in a 15 century Italian ballad and can also introduce a Mexican style bit of trumpet playing into the title track.

Ariella, who is bi-lingual and equally at home singing a Scottish or English ballad or Italian songs, has authored three songs and set to music words by the famous Italian courtesan Gaspara Stampa.

Ariella Uliano lectures for the British Council in Italy and studies period dancing so she is well steeped in the diversity and harmony of European cultures. She is better known in Italy than in Britain but with such talent it only needs the right door to open for her to find a large audience in the UK.

A PROPOSITO DI
Ariella Uliano - TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE

L' album TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella Uliano è pura poesia e melodie sublimi: dal Dolce Stil Novo alla Scozia di Maria Stuarda e i fantasmi d’Irlanda.

TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella Uliano è un CD che abbraccia e fonde due culture letterarie e musicali, rispettivamente quella italiana medievale e rinascimentale e quella celtico-inglese.
Il tema principale che percorre l’album è l’amore: da quello cortese medievale idealizzato e raffinato e a volte tragico - come nel caso di Dante & Beatrice e Paolo & Francesca - a quello più liberatorio e celebrativo dei ritmi delle stagioni, del ritorno della primavera e del rifiorire della vita intorno e dentro di noi - come in I' Mi Trovai del Poliziano, Sumer da un manoscritto in antico anglo-sassone, Accadde di Maggio da un brano di un troviere francese e la danza country inglese Upon A Summer's Day.
In TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE è presente anche una poesia d'amore di Gaspara Stampa rivestita da un magistrale arrangiamento di Ariella Uliano e del chitarrista irlandese Will Killeen... basato su una melodia tradizionale celtica!
TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella Uliano include poesie di Dante Alighieri - tra cui l’omonimo sonetto - Gaspara Stampa, Angelo Poliziano e Lorenzo De’ Medici, su musiche tradizionali celtiche e melodie e arrangiamenti originali di Ariella Uliano.

Lo stile dell’opera di Ariella Uliano TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE è stato descritto come:
avant-garde, minimalista, nobile, raffinato.

TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE riflette il background multi-culturale di Ariella Uliano e dei suoi musicisti. Ospiti di questo album: Stefano Paiusco, Francesco Gualerzi, Will Killeen e Stefan Oslansky.

TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella Uliano è distribuito da: www.ariella-music.co.uk oppure da www.cdbaby.com e da altri distributori online.

RECENSIONI ITALIANE
Ariella Uliano - TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE

Francesco Recchini:
Unire due grandi tradizioni musicali in un unico CD con tanta grazia e delicatezza non può che far piacere. La grande poesia italiana ha trovato chi fa cantare i suoi versi e li rende leggeri e fruibili come non mai. Bravissima Ariella e bravissimi i tuoi compagni di questo delizioso viaggio che va verso il cuore e l’intelletto.

Margherita Rigone:
TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE è un CD magico, colto e raffinato. La voce di Ariella è evocativa di mille suggestioni ed emozioni. I suoi arrangiamenti musicali legano magistralmente le due culture e nello stesso tempo attualizzano il passato nel presente.
TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella dice molto agli “addetti ai lavori” ma anche a chi non lo è.

Laura e Fabio, Marche:
Davvero un'idea splendida in TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella Uliano il connubio tra testi antichi e nobili e musiche attuali che ne accentuano le caratteristiche. Complimenti ad Ariella Uliano per la sua nuova opera TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE e per la cura nei dettagli che contraddistingue lei e i suoi collaboratori.

Margherita, Milano:
Il nuovo CD di Ariella Uliano, TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE, mi è piaciuto tantissimo a cominciare dalla foto che è uno schianto - dovrebbe vederla il cameriere che quel giorno, in Corso Vittorio Emanuele a Milano, rimase trafitto dal colore dei tuoi occhi! - oltre alla musica e alla recitazione. È un'ottima presentazione, molto professionale.

Andrea, Marche:
TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella è piaciuto molto a tutti i nostri amici. Quasi ogni sera ci mettiamo in studio e ce lo riascoltiamo. Ci sono delle melodie suonate, interpretate e registrate con una vena di magia eccellente. Mi piace molto anche il brano In The Bleak Mid-Winter tratto dal primo CD So, We'll Go No More A-Roving, uno degli album che faccio fatica a togliere dal mio lettore CD da questo Aprile.

Francesco e Rosa, Roma:
TANTO GENTILE E TANTO ONESTA PARE di Ariella Uliano è magnifico, un vero gioiello da intenditori di cose belle.

I've just listened to Tanto Gentile E Tanto Onesta Pare from my local music library archive. The songs are really great and the artist sings them so beautifully! I even liked the fact that she has a Scottish accent in one of the songs!
