Luca Lombardi is one of the most prolific and inventive Italian composers of our time. He has sustained his compositional creativity on a high level for more than fifty eyars and has received accolades for his music, not only in his native Italy, but also in Germany, Japan, and Israel, as well as in the United States. Lombardi is mostly known for large-scale symphonic works, including symphony-cantatas and secular oratorios, as well as one-movement orchestral pieces and four operas. In the 1980s Luca Lombardi met the flutist Roberto Fabbriciani whose artistry inspired many of his flute compositions. This album represents a variety in all the pieces and a diverse collection of flute instruments played by Roberto Fabbriciani, ranging from the earliest manifestations of Lombardi´s muse to pieces with special sound effects giving voice to human expression. In the pieces Nel vento, con ariel and the Einstein-Dialog the sound of the solo flute is captured by the timbre of a solo cello, played by cellist Leonard Elschenbroich- a commissioned piece for an Einstein exhibition in Berlin celebrating the century of the theory of relativity.
