Festa Mobile were formed by the Boccuzzi brothers, coming from Monopoli. Working for RCA, they had the chance of playing with many important artist of the Italian pop music. Among the various experiences it's worth mentioning the Jacopone musical, with Gianni Morandi and Paola Pitagora, whose "rhythm background" was played by Festa Mobile. RCA also released their only album, "Diario Di Viaggio Della Festa Mobile", a fantasy concept album with large space given to keyboards and vocals a bit too low compared to the musical background. The music is for the most part pretty fast space prog rock, and very Italian sounding in a similar vein as PFM. Their guitarist offers some very tasty Fripp-influenced riffs and he does a good job balancing the quirky piano lines.
The great collection with the best of I Nomadi, the live "Album Concerto" with Francesco Guccini, demos, rarities and 7 previously unreleased tracks singed by Augusto Daolio. Contains also a booklet with rare photos and images.
Abandoned at the age of two months and taken in by the Ospedale della Pietà, Chiara (or Chiaretta) rose – within that enclosed charitable institution in Venice – to become one of the leading European violinists of the middle of the 18th century. No stranger to such acclaim himself from two and a half centuries later, Fabio Biondi, on his first release for Glossa, has devised a programme drawing on the personal diary of this remarkable musician – taught by Antonio Vivaldi, and later a virtuoso soloist on the violin as well as the viola d’amore – of concertos and sinfonias by composers who, like the prete rosso, taught at the Pietà: Porta, Porpora, Martinelli, Latilla, Perotti and Bernasconi are all musicians whose compositions charm and delight as much today as they will have done in the time of Chiara.
