Fabrizio Paterlini Returns With Calming ‘Riverscapes’

A moment of neo-ambient calm...

Italian pianist and composer Fabrizio Paterlini returns with new album ‘Riverscapes’.

The name may be new to you, but Fabrizio Paterlini has already developed a huge global audience. Sitting in that modern classical, solo piano, neo-ambient vein, his work has a uniquely calming quality, a feel of perpetual flow.

Previous projects such as 2017’s ‘Secret Book’ and 2021’s ‘Lifeblood’ won no small degree of acclaim, notching up more than 165 million streams and even becoming a favourite on-set listen for Captain America’s Chris Evans.

New album ‘Riverscapes’ is a wonderfully soothing return, the finely balanced compositions evading categorisation. The image of the rolling river is ever-present, with the composer saying of the title track:

“The river, restless and sonorous, surrenders to its own flow, carrying with it the stories of men and women who have crossed it and sailed it throughout the centuries. Its sound and rhythm are a constant source of inspiration for my life and inevitably, for my music…”

Out now, the song cycle as a whole is a beautiful listen. Catch Fabrizio Paterlini at London’s Conway Hall on November 9th, and Manchester’s Stoller Hall on November 10th.

Tune in now.
