Aquino’s Italian Songbook is very personal and the repertoire here is broad: film music by Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota, plus great songs by famous cantautori (Italian singersongwriters) the likes of Luigi Tenco, Lucio Dalla and Fabrizio De André. Aquino recalls largely forgotten pioneers of Italian music such as Mario Pasquale Costa and Gorni Kramer. He receives outstanding support from pianist Danilo Rea (tracks 2, 4, 7, 8 & 10).

Together with accordionist Natalino Marchetti, they create deeply heartfelt music. And there’s a luxurious unfurling of sound when Aquino’s group is combined with the Orchestra Filarmonica di Benevento. In the trio format they are gentle, soft and intimate, but they can also bring on the opulence of an orchestra, and it is this dichotomy which gives Italian Songbook its charm.

Every note of this album conveys Aquino’s devotion to his musical heritage. With a soft tone and yet great urgency he develops these well-known melodies and brings out all of the beauty in them. And so the Italian Songbook has become a touching homage to the music of his homeland. Fate really must have known what it was doing all along.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
