One of the most lovely themes I heard since I started this journey as a playlist curator. This could be the perfect soundtrack for a film, is delicate and in the same time plenty of emotions.
I think this is one of the most covered songs in the world, there are more than 650 official versions recorded. It could not be different. The theme is so sweet and tender that can get directly to the heart of babies and adults…
“Oh, this is the night, it's a beautiful night
And we call it bella notte
Look at the skies, they have stars in their eyes
On this lovely bella note
Side by side with your loved one
You'll find enchantment here
The night will weave its magic spell
When the one you love is near
Oh, this is the night and the heavens are right
On this lovely bella notte”

Listening to this track, we hardly notice the constant crescendo of dynamics and tension.It could be the description of our breathing during the day, from the calm of the awakening to the breathlessness given by the evening fatigue.Or it could be the breath of two lovers, which evolves as the passion grows stronger.
“With my music, I like to tell a story. I sketch an atmosphere, which reflects me at that moment. However, just painting this atmosphere is not enough for me, something has got to happen. With that atmosphere as a starting point, I take off. Let go of where you were and join me on an adventure…”
Classical music and hard rock, often met. Just think about the Concerto For Group And Orchestra recorded in 1969 by Deep Purple. A masterpiece in the history of music.

Few things can calm me down as a simple but really touching waltzer can. Listening to this track, I can feel the friendship that the author built with his intrument. I can imagine him, talking to the piano while pressing the keys. His music is intimate, soft, touching.
Serenity, sense of completeness, tranquility. This is what you’ll feel listening to this track. The melody surrounds you, and is able to heal every fear you could feel in your soul.

A little bit of Chopin, a taste of Beethoven, and some Dream Theater recalls too. This is the magic behind this wonderful track that slowly grows taking away your breath, the perfect mix between old and modern classical music.
The first time I heard this track, I got completely into it. It's powerful, it's uplifting, it's overwhelming. And it was associated to a stunning video that became viral in no time. A guy, Noah Kalina, took a picture of himself once a day for almost 6 years, and then put everything in a rapid sequence. Can you imagine it? Almost 3.000 pictures that in less then 6 minutes flow in front of your eyes.. and this music running as sountrack.
Everybody in the world, knows this wonderful melody. Everybody at least once, found himself whistling the theme while absent-minded. And this happens because the simplicity of the notes brings back the listener to his childhood. Oh, and obviously because the film “Forrest Gump” was a total blast for the emotions of the viewer :D
A sweet and at the same time comforting melody is the strong point of this song. A melody that smells of desire for discovery, and that grows during all the track duration, evolving into a strong rhythmic version at the end.
The perfect song to dream while we're flying...
