Melancholic and romantic masterpiece created by the great Christian Fennesz, using samples taken from Gustav Mahler’s symphonies.
Recorded live at RadioKulturhaus, Vienna, in May 2011. Played live also at Carnegie Hall, New York, and at the Borusan Art Centre, Istanbul.
Released on vinyl in January 2016.
Listening to it repeatedly. Perhaps my favourite song of the year 2015.
At the moment I’m totally in synchrony with the mood of this song.
An unofficial video found on Youtube, not bad:
A heart touching melody.
Here is a short list of the best albums and EPs (in order of preference, near enough) among those I have listened during the year passed: / Ecco i miei album ed EP musicali preferiti del 2014 (in ordine di preferenza, più o meno) fra tutti quelli che ho avuto la possibilità di ascoltare:
A superlative album with enchanting wintry atmospheres, released in the year 2013 by the Italian label Glacial Movements. The very beginning of the album is extraordinary (first part of “Alchemy of Snow”), and my favourite track is “Icepulse” (the other tracks are excellent too).
Un disco superlativo con avvolgenti atmosfere invernali, pubblicato nel 2013 dall’etichetta discografica italiana Glacial Movements. Il disco ammalia subito a partire dall’incipit (prima parte di “Alchemy of Snow”), e la mia traccia preferita è “Icepulse” (ma anche le altre sono eccellenti).
