Info for Lombardi: Music for Solo Flute
In the 1980s Luca Lombardi met the flautist Roberto Fabbriciani whose artistry inspired many of his flute compositions. This CD represents a variety in all the pieces and a diverse collection of flute instruments played by Roberto Fabbriciani, ranging from the earliest manifestations of Lombardi's muse to pieces with special sound effects giving voice to human expression. In the pieces Nel vento, con ariel and the Einstein-Dialog the sound of the solo flute is captured by the timbre of a solo cello, played by cellist Leonard Elschenbroich. A commissioned piece for an Einstein exhibition in Berlin celebrating the century of the theory of relativity.
