A new disc by Alberto Nones with music by living Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov and Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninov is forthcoming. Recorded on April 20 using internal resources (on his old August Foerster concert grand) with the precious collaboration of sound engineer Giordano Corsetti (picture) and piano technician Claudio Capponi, the disc is an initiative for Peace. Alberto's revenues from this recording will entirely go to Nawal Soufi, Italian-Moroccan human rights activits who aids refugees from all wars. The cover features a photo by Unsal Koslu. To support this project, you can simply download or stream the musical files. It's beautiful music, to which the recording setting (on a 1925 instrument) gives a different, old-time touch.
