This is a dedication for my adored love, a piano solo composition which starts with tenderness and goes on as the feeling grows in a trusted relationship.
“The lost stone” is the first single of the new project “The Second Sound”, in which pianist and composer Lorenzo Tempesti will meet other artists and record original compositions belonging to the wide world of modern classical music. The first duet is with cellist Alice-Micol Moro, for a piece which evokes ancestral sounds, despite the piano tone being fully contemporary. The natural scenario is that of a river with crystalline waters, in which each stone – “The lost stone” – comes from an ancient and mysterious story, the result of geological evolutions and chemical processes, and in the same way this piece evolves, in the intertwining between the two instruments.
This is the first stone, launched by “The second sound” for the exclusive distribution of Believe, which promises a great future, since Lorenzo Tempesti has already passed the 80000 monthly listeners milestone on Spotify.
When I was a child, REM were one of my mother’s favorites. So this music runs in my veins, and it couldn’t but end on my fingers playing the piano. This cover of Losing my religion gives the original song to a new atmosphere, resulting in a track full of energy and melancholy.
What connects music, photography and love? The “Love is blind” project has been unveiled: two artists from Udine, Italy, composer Lorenzo Tempesti and photographer Alina Brag, have tried to give a universal frame to love. How? By publishing a photo series of straight and gay couples, and using one of these pictures as the cover art Lorenzo Tempesti’s new single, entitled “Love is blind”.
It is a romantic piano composition, with a very simple character, which depicts the typical tenderness between two lovers. Are they a boy and a girl? Two boys? Two girls? Try listening to the song while looking at the various photos which are being released on the artists’ social profiles (@alina_brag and @suonimusicaidee on Instagram, Lorenzo Tempesti composer on Facebook). Does anything change for you? If the music sounds “out of tune” on any of the photos, you are probably “out of tune”, because love is the same, just the way we look at it can be different.
Both artists do not belong to the LGBT community, but they experience a sense of profound injustice for the social difficulties that homosexual couples live every day. The search for models for the photographs clearly revealed the current situation: “Many, although wishing to participate, said no, for fear of revealing their sexual orientation to family members or employers.” Our society is still stuck in front of a mountain of homophobic prejudices: why should being gay change the way you are loved by your family, or valued in your profession?
Lorenzo Tempesti’s track is available on all stores and digital streaming services, even for free on YouTube where it is possible to listen to it while viewing the video clip with all the photos of the project, taken by Alina Brag. All the pictures, the music and the info on www.loveisblind.it
On August 28, 2020 Lorenzo Tempesti’s new single, Home Celtic Home, was released. A composition for harp that takes you back to the green and magical places of a Celtic kingdom. A meditative and relaxing atmosphere, a track suitable for: ballet, documentary films, fantasy fiction, fairy tales, drama, commercials, time-lapse and much more.
Dedicated to the island suspended in the Mediterranean, between Europe and Africa. A piano suite in four moments, inspired by different areas of the archipelago, from which each song takes its name: Bajda Ridge, Marsaskala, Xwejni and Dingli Cliffs. A 12-minute suite to be enjoyed without interruption, to take a breath from everyday worries: once again Lorenzo Tempesti’s piano transports us into a magical world, far away, suspended in the middle of infinity.
A single of perfect chill out, capable of lowering the heartbeat rate and inducing sleep.This track was projected keeping in mind a lots of musical factors which can raise relaxation in the listener: very slow tempo (44), subtle heart-beat styled electronic bass drum, atmospherical pad, non-repetitive piano melody and harmony.
“The flat sea” is a Digital 45 for piano with an ambient sound, produced by Lorenzo Tempesti in 2019. The title track includes an electronic pad.
The choice of the grand piano sound mixed with a “una corda” piano gives the melody a round and brilliant sound at the same time. It includes the title track and a cover of a song by Tommy Berre and Lance Allen, “Within my heart”.
