The aim of this recording is to let you appreciate particularly interesting music, played by first class musicians, recorded according to absolute excellence criteria. Moreover, thanks to the following side notes, we wish to make you able to know how this record has to be correctly played and therefore offer you a tool to evaluate how your reproduction equipment behaves, in relation to how it should behave... This does not mean, a priori, that, in case your equipment indicates a different sound from the one indicated in this guide, that it sounds “badly”: it actually and only means that it suggests a different sound from the one indicated by the person/s who has/have made the recording. If you are satisfied with the sound suggested by your equipment, though different from the one here indicated, there is no obligation to change anything. This record is only a "litmus paper" created to provide you with some extra info, you might consider useful or not and thanks to which you could freely choose if you wish to either listen to your equipment as it is or make some slight or substantial change. We are not going to offer any law carved in stone… we only offer extra indication to the ones you usually find in other records.

REC LIVE !
It was April 2009, when I had the idea to realize a new "recording format" to enhance the value of the "chamber music", conceived in a wide range. Usually you can identify "chamber music" with a typical classical music, but I think that you can call "chamber music" any kind of music, conceived for few musicians (2, 3, maybe 4 at last), who play it in front of few people, in a small environment, quite different from the big theatres. So, not only classical music, but also jazz, rock, crossover... with no limit to imagination. So, what is "Velut Luna Rec Live"? It's a small happening, where few people (20 - 25 or little more) gather together in a small, good sounding environment; they sit down all around the musicians, so close that you cannot imagine it possible in a standard Theatre or Auditorium; so the feeling with Music and between the players and the audience is at the top. Few, selected, high grade microphones well set up, record and "fix" forever the magic of these happenings. During the recording of the digital and analog masters and the subsequent transfer to disc, the entire audio chain was unaltered. The signal was not passed through any processing device (i.e. compression or limiting) at any step during production. So, just for example, listening to track #07, you you will need to pump up the volume... for the very High Dynamic Range of this recording (there is no normalization inside this CD) In this CD I selected the takes, recorded along six years and twenty concerts, that represent me as well: a touch of female and male voice, a touch of rock, a touch of jazz and a touch of classical piano. And so... good listening ! Marco Lincetto
THE CINEMA SHOW!
STRAVINSKIJ CHAMBER ORCHESTRA: Marco Tezza, conductor & piano solo. FEATURING SPECIAL GUESTS: Domenico Nordio, solo violin on Schindler's List; Mara Comellato, flute; Antonio Graziani, clarinet; Mirko Bellucco, trumpet; Benedetta Botter, voice; Graziano Zuin and Gino Schipillitti, guitars; Paolo Vidaich, percussions; Alessandro Piovan, drums. The generations of composers who have grown both with and for the cinema, and who have ended up being completely identified to it or to certain film directors, can only confirm the need for a serious school where the principles of the art of composing can be given so that images may remain forever within music, within a melody, a timbre or a chord, and that they may instantly penetrate that moment on film. Writing for the cimema has also become a way to break up or reduce the 20th century waste, that was created by both contemporary composers and the public, by facing the problem that communication between the artist and the listener must be made easier, bearing in mind that the music being composed will within no time at any reach a very wide audience. This Cd is an impressive example of that: the music written by the gretest author of all time, such as Ennio Morricone, Henry Mancini, John Williams, Alan Menken, Alan Silvestri, Astor Piazzolla take us through the magic world of memorable stories and images.
