Virginio Aiello "Pigalle": a piano pearl.

Fine, rare and glowing - much like a pearl, the recent piano release by an Italian artist Virginio Aiello carries the above qualities and then some.

This illusive, hypnotizing, waltz composition entitled "Pigalle" is certainly a pearl (pun intended) in the genre. Written around a strong classical core, the track is delivered as effortlessly as a sequence of waves travelling across an ocean, anticipating every next bar and arriving always on time, all the while maintaining a highly strong momentum keeping the listener in the now. Light and elegant in its spirit, the composition has a note of eeriness to it, making the entirety of the experience unique and memorable.

Piano music enthusiast or not, I can very highly recommend this. Listen to "Pigalle" up above.
