Ritratto is a stunning neo-classical piano solo album by the talented Carlo Matti, released under the Raighes Factory label. The album is a beautiful portrait of the muse Alessia, capturing the intricate nuances of her personality, from the complexity of her roots to the simplicity of a blue sky. The album is a dialogue between the author and the represented subject, reflecting the echo of the Universe in a true and authentic way.

The album consists of five tracks, each with its unique character and style. Contrappunto della mente is a linear interweaving of thought, while Valzer della Principessa pays tribute to the elegance and sweet masks that decorate the structure of time. Qualcosa che riguarda l’Universo is a secret weaving that reveals the mysteries of the Universe, and Pédanterie poétique is an art that only the determined can understand.

The focus track, Dov’è l’Orsa Maggiore?, is a perfect representation of the album’s essence. It takes the listener on a journey through the portentous realm of dreams, surrounded by the sounds of a friendly forest. As they look up at the sky, they ask themselves, “Where is the Big Dipper?” This track is a beautiful example of the balance between the visible and invisible worlds, played with love and mystery, just as the muse Alessia intended.

Carlo Matti’s Ritratto is not just a classical album; it’s a work of art that invites the listener to explore the intricate nuances of the Universe. This album is a must-listen for anyone who appreciates the beauty and complexity of the music.

A place of music where new ideas, sounds and arts comes to light. Here noise becomes sounds and notes becomes harmonies. The factory studio is based in Sardinia but the project is extended all over the world.
