Album Notes

After a long journey of musical experimentation and creation - which has taken him from early acoustic explorations with the band Celeste, travelling through progressive and electronic experimentation to the fusing of rock and classical music - Ciro Perrino offers his sixth solo album L'ISOLA.

Recorded with a twenty three piece orchestra and including some of Italy's premiere musicians - with the invaluable collaboration of respected orchestrater and arranger Marco Canepa and conductor Paolo Pezzi - L'ISOLA is the culmination of orchestral tradition, European cult instrumentation and a passion for the translation of spiritual search in music.

L'ISOLA has a simple and peaceful sound to it that allows the listener to drift into his or her own thoughts and meditation but it would be wrong to underestimate the almost academic complexity that has gone into making this extraordinary album. Ciro has been an acclaimed musician in Italy for many years. Not prone to seeking the spotlight or self-promotion, this quiet man, living an isolated life at the top of a Ligurian mountain, has relentlessly continued his search for musical and spiritual excellence whilst quietly selling thousands of records!

The time has come to spread Ciro's music across the rest of the world. L'ISOLA is an album for all those people who would appreciate a moment of peace and serenity in a world that so often is neither.


Over the years Ciro has explored many religions and spiritual beliefs always translating his discoveries into music. Three years ago he went on a pilgrimage to the Island of Orta in the province of Novara in Northern Italy. On the island is a lake and in the centre of the lake is the tiny island of San Giulio, home to a 16th Century monastery.

This area was once the gateway into Lombardi and Northern Italy and as such it was the scene of many a bloody battle. The monks, in an attempt to preserve some level of faith and hope in those barbaric times, built a path within the holy grounds that pilgrims could visit.

The pilgrims would travel twice around the path. Once in a clockwise direction to reflect on 'The Road Of Silence' and once anticlockwise reflecting on 'The Road Of Meditation'. Each path has ten thoughts the traveller should reflect on and Ciro has transposed his own reflections into short musical passages.

Orta and the Isola San Giulio are now beautiful and peaceful Islands with no obvious signs of such a savage path. But the Monastery and the monk's path are still there and pilgrims still visit and consider the Paths Of silence and Of Meditation. For those of us who cannot go there, Ciro's album gives us the chance of taking the same spiritual journey through his music.


"L'ISOLA is... an album that exudes inner peace and a sense of well being; celestial and sometimes sacred music which overcomes the touch of melancholy that emerges every now in then in us all, with a force of total harmony".

Mario Giammetti JAM

"(Perrino) takes us with him to the island of San Giulio in Novara, along the monks' path on a divine journey of luminous introspection, of self awareness, religious and symbiotic harmony, with an ambience of total peace."

Loris Furlan MUCCHIO

"... from 'Listen To The Silence' to 'When You Are Fully Aware Your Journey is Over' from alternative piano touches alla 'Sartie', pizzicato of strings, the solemnity of chamber music, the re-iteration of woodwind alla 'Philip Glass', giving a feeling 'Morriconiani'...."

Wonderful, soulful, intermate, spiritual music - Breathtaking
If, like me you like music to take you places that you have never been then this Album is for you. Put this CD on and shut your eyes and let your imagination take you to a peaceful place where you have no cares in the world.
No troubles, no stress, just you and the music. In the end thats all that realy matters.
This is a stunning effort from this gifted Italian, It may not appeal to all tastes, but this album cannot be disliked.
