“Cinematic feasts of dramatic strings and cascading pianos that will satisfy fans of Nils Frahm and Ólafur Arnalds” The Ransom Note

On 2nd June !K7 records contemporary classical imprint 7K! will release ‘Endless’ – the new album played entirely by Luca D’Alberto – the Italian composer who counts Wim and Donata Wenders, Peter Lindbergh and Lars Von Trier’s Zentropa as fans. Driven by pristine piano and rich strings, ‘Endless’ is sonically opulent with vivid, wonder-evoking pieces conveying wintry, widescreen panoramas and a propulsive arpeggio-fueled energy. Luca composed, arranged and played all instruments on ‘Endless’ himself – the violin, viola, violectra, cello and piano. It was produced by Martyn Heyne (who has worked with Nils Frahm, Lubomir Melnyk, Peter Broderick, Tiny Ruins and The National), with additional production by the lauded DJ/musician Henrik Schwarz. D’Alberto graduated ‘summa cum laude’ with a Ministerial Mention at the Istituto Superiore di Studi Musicali G. Braga in Teramo, Abruzzo, where he was born and raised. He has performed at prestigious events including the Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch in Germany for the ‘Pina40 Festival’, and has worked with various influential figures in the Italian movie and theater world: These include ‘Lampedusani’ - a film-based art project by Luca, the award winning director Costanza Quatriglio and the renowned novelist/poet Erri De Luca, whilst orchestration and full scores were provided by D’Alberto for films including Giorgio Albertazzi's 'Giacomo Puccini', Michele Placido's 'La Scelta', plus 'Sembra Mio Figlio' and '9X10 Novanta' by Costanza Quatriglio.
