The themes of loneliness and sadness are often recurring in neo-classical music, evoking strong emotions and memories. They can become so intimate and sincere that the listeners can put themselves into the shows of the artist and share such feelings.

In his first full-length album, composer and pianist Gianluca Piacenza decided to keep it minimal. In “The Road To Home” you will only find the beautiful sound of his custom Petrof upright piano. To complement the warm and intimate timbre of the piano recordings, Gianluca decided also to make prominent all the imperfections, such as pedal creaks, slightly detuned hits, breaths and mechanical sounds of the piano. Every track started off as improvisation and then transformed into a cohesive musical journey.

All recorded late at night, “this is a journey into my heart and my deepest emotions.. to capture the magic of loneliness.”
