8/10 Jamie Staff review, 08 March 2017

Classy. That’s me. This new one from Stefano Guzzetti has ‘class’ written all over it, coming as it does from a neo-classical giant whose gracefully, graciously tinkling melodicism has been pleasing our ears here at the Towers for some years now. His stately piano and soaring strings are dripping with emotion and arrive at us with all the luminescence that the metallic printed sleeve would suggest.

The record begins gently with the nurturing ‘Womb’; beautiful violin, storytelling piano, flute and field recordings evoking a Summer’s day in the country. Stefano moves through the gorgeously soft and tranquil ‘While You Sleep’ with its music box caresses, and now that I’ve made it as far as the third track ‘All Our Days’ I’m about to weep every bit as much as the swelling strings. ‘Psalm in A Minor’ introduces a more densely woven tapestry, drenched in sorrow.

The playing of the cello and double bass on ‘Mother’ is spellbinding. Guzzetti’s piano on ‘Shoreline’ evokes a serene scene at the seaside -- hmm, probably an early weekday morning on the Dorset coast -- with those strings gently swelling behind him. Could a storm be approaching? A moment of light ambient interlude arrives in the form of ‘Feather’ before the cello and viola and violin on ‘Sospesa’ have my eyes threatening to wee again. That’s not very elegant. Oh, wait -- saved by a customer. Night.
