Info for Timeline
"Timeline" – as stated in its self-explanatory title – is a personal timeline, a chronological thread that unites significant events in our lives. Sometimes the lines of time intertwine, creating knots that leave a mark, trigger a change, lead to a turning point, until you get to another knot. You could condense in this sentence the manifesto of this album which stems from an ancient collaboration between the two artists who nevertheless had never crossed their paths discographically. Two different aesthetics those of Cominoli and Olzer; the first original in phrasing and melodic construction, intense and never taken for granted, the second consolidated pianist among the most interesting that appeared on the national scene in the recent period, with qualities not common also as composer and arranger . An elegant, refined album, with partly original pieces. A enjoyable and perfect sounding disc, even the most demanding audiophile palates.
