“Five years have passed since the publication
of my collection of miniatures entitled Simple Music for Piano.
In this period I have had the good fortune to hear
diverse interpretations of these pieces by various artists.
However, the recording of 16 miniatures by Mr. Stella
has surprised me in a particularly pleasurable way.
Not being a professional pianist myself,
I once decided to record several of the miniatures
in accordance with the imagination of their author.
The way in which Mr. Stella approaches “the simple music"
very closely coincides with my own perception,
while thoroughly eclipsing my modest abilities as interpreter.
I am sincerely grateful to Mr. Stella
for his subtle attitude towards material, tempos, pauses,
nuances and his choice of the sequence,
which ultimately shapes
this distinctive and highly enjoyable listening experience.”
“Stella plays the material with a Bill Evans-like sensitivity
that imbues these pensive reflections with grace.”
Ron Schepper, Textura (Canada)
“Alessandro, with his sensitive touch, extracts all his subtle fragrance from every song. With Für Alina he gives us a luminous version of incredible intensity. White Scenery, which concludes this beautiful album, is a song shining with pure magic.”
Dionys Della Luce, Inactuelles, musiques singulières (France)
“A magical sound and a truly magnificent performance.”
Luca Ciammarughi, Top Ten, Radio Classica (Italy)
“A sound that seems to come from nowhere,
if not by ourselves, within our intimate listening.”
Andrea Bedetti, CdClassico.com (Italy)
