'Unity' is the latest luxurious album from Argentinian-born Bruno Sanfilippo (now one of Barcelona's premier exponents of Minimalism). But hey, this isn't at all what I was expecting from Mr Sanfilippo -- whereas he was last heard tinkling and twinkling on moonlit piano, all the while a fully-fledged channeler of the departed Claude Debussy, he has added gorgeous acoustic, stringed and bowed timbres to his mix of neoclassical adventures in keyboards and electronics.
The album opens with the achingly choral-sounding yet earthly and profane textures of 'Spiral', before segueing into melancholic, slow 3/4 time duet for piano and cello ('One') and then some really lovely winding, gently undulating strings for more of the old acoustic feels; a lot like what Richter and Frahm have done for us at some time or other. Some beautiful, very moving cello and violin playing here, particularly on sixth track 'Entity' that would probably have brought a tear to my eye if I were a better human being and less of a robot (although it's probably part of the coping mechanisms we all need here to get through all the packing we do every day). Really, it's the (deceptive) simplicity in structure, in melody, and the sheer stark rawness of the musicians and their instrumentation playing off one another that provides for some substantive emotional punch.
I'm even reminded of Yo-Yo Ma's cello playing Saint-Saens' 'The Swan', at times. Powerful stuff that ticks all the right boxes, and then some.
