Höstsonaten new album + new member!

6 Mag

Höstsonaten is a project that italian progmaster Fabio Zuffanti lead from 1996 composing all the music and choosing each time the appropriate musicians. From 2015 things change, Höstsonaten is no longer only Fabio Zuffanti but a duo in “co-management” with Luca Scherani (of La Coscienza Di Zeno) that lends from years his service as keyboardist, arranger, coordinator, etc…. On may 13 Zuffanti, Scherani and a large group of guest musicians will start recording the new Höstsonaten album entitled “Symphony # 1: Cupid & Psyche”. It will be a suite for band + orchestra that will lead Höstsonaten music towards an even more symphonic and majestic sound, with the electrical output of a band of star players. Stay in touch!

I (Fabio) like very much that the records end up “in glory”, and I have written many pompous endings for my albums. but the one I just finished for the next Hostsonaten beats them all.

HöSTSONATEN “The rime of the ancient mariner: Alive in Theatre” DVD + CD Out NOW!

24 Mag


The great dream of Fabio Zuffanti from the composition of the music on Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem “The rime of the mariner ancoent” was to transpose the whole opera in a theatrical version giving people a version that could visualize the magic words and the music of the poem. Thanks to the meeting with genoese director Susanna Tagliapietra, author of the great achievements in the field of the musical with his versions of “Aida” and “Jesus Christ Superstar”, the dream has become reality. Susanna has helped to bring alive the musical world of Zuffanti creating a multimedia work and reproducing on stage the supernatural universe of Coleridge with multimedia elements, dance and stage actions. The first of the show was held last December 16, 2012 in the prestigious Teatro Verdi in Genoa getting a great success. From evening is taken this double album containing a DVD with the shooting of the show (and a funny backstage) and a CD with the audio recording of the evening. Compared to the studio version, published on CD last year, the theatrical version contains many new arrangements and a completely new piece (“Interlude”).
