“It’s often said that a musician has a certain lyricism to their playing, but Federico Albanese seems to take this one step further. Each piece seems to unfurl like a poem, the music blessed with a real sense of imagery to its composition” (Clash). Berlin-based composer and pianist Federico Albanese drew comparisons to fellow Italian Ludovico Einaudi when he released his “emotionally open and atmospherically charged debut” (Igloo), The Houseboat and the Moon, in 2014. With his follow-up, The Blue Hour, the former prop man brings together airy, cinematic compositions that blend classical, pop and psychedelia.
