    Barcelona based piano player and electronic musician Bruno Sanfilippo is a classically trained musician and composer who has been exploring the borders of minimal piano concepts and electro-acoustic music for more then 20 years. His CD series "PianoTextures“ sets him in a direct tradition of artists as Harold Budd and Brian Eno, combining slow piano tunes with electronic soundscapes. With "ClarOscuro“ he now makes his step into the genre of modern classical music by presenting his first composition work for piano trio. Most of the nine tracks on the album feature Sanfilippo accompanied by spanish musicians Manuel del Fresno on violincello and Pere Bardagi on Violin, while some of the tracks still let the sensitive piano playing stand on its own. With the fragility and beauty of some Arvo Pärt compositions and a high cinematic touch, "ClarOscuro" brings the perfect soundtrack for an imaginary movie.

*****
"ClarOscuro presents an extremely compelling argument on behalf of Bruno Sanfilippo as both a performer and modern classical composer" Textura [Honorable Mention 2014 best album]

ClarOscuro has been selected as one of Stationary Travels Top Ten Modern Classical albums of 2014

"The Sanfilippo’s entry into this field is a truly lovely and very self-assured album of pieces either for solo piano or for piano and strings. This album has to be considered a triumph for Sanfilippo’s career" Make Your Own Taste [ClarOscuro top Ten albums of 2014]

"ClarOscuro" included on Best of 2014 list from Headphone Commute "Music For Watching The Snow Slowly Fall In The Moonlight".

"An impressively elegant and blissfully tranquil set of tracks, ClarOscuro's gentle, classical approach calls to mind the delicate, minimal piano work of Satie or Max Richter whilst benefitting from Bruno's evident expertise in the contemporary field of modern ambient" Morpheus Music

"ClarOscuro is an exceptional album and a real highlight of 2014” Headphonaught

“Not only is Sanfilippo still recording, he’s continuing to expand his palette. ClarOscuro arrives on the heels of Piano Textures 1, 2 and 3, which seemed to be his magnus opus until the new disc dropped”
A Closer Listen

"Bruno Sanfilippo has that rare gift for composing hugely emotive and highly personal music from tender, melancholic peals of piano, both ponderous and also joyous plus a highly acute awareness of the power of acoustic resonance. His playing has a grace, purity and tenderness I've not heard in some time. No more words needed other than nine spacious tracks that can only be described as "achingly beautiful" Norman Records

"Claroscuro" is without doubt the best release I heard in 2014, and surely some of the best music that Bruno has ever done" Rik MacLean· Ping Things

"ClarOscuro’ is really rather beautiful from beginning to end" Leonard’s Lair
