Press Release

Recorded three years after «Aspiciens Pulchritudinem», his first piano solo album, this new «Skies of Sea» shows the remarkable progress made in this period of time by the musician of Syracuse, both in instrumental technique and in the expressive language. If one remembers Francesco Branciamore as drummer and Perfect Quintet leader in «Keep up the dialogue», these two albums will certainly surprise them. But the reaction will be softened when one thinks about him as the composer–arranger of «Remembering B.E.», a record where he doesn’t play any instrument but pays homage to Bill Evans by conducting a chamber sextet without percussion instruments. From this album to «Skies of Sea», another important stage in the growth of Branciamore as a pianist, the gap is less wide than one would think at first. “I switched to the piano because I have always used it to compose. After years spent playing my beloved drums, I needed a turning point and the instrument I had in my hand was the piano...”.
