about

The title of this album is the latin word for ‘little flame’, mostly meant as the light of a candle. Something that, even if small, is metaphorically wide and vast. A light can be perceived as a gesture of faith, of perseverance against the adversities, of pure love or the essence of life. The purpose of this collection of music is to portray different aspects of love as meant in its different incarnations: being it faith, passion, or even hate. While writing the tracks for “Lumen”, the intention of the composer was to produce a very cinematic kind of music, something that could interact with the listener by also evoking images and scenes.

To the beauty of flowers, to the power of nature. I have seen again the poppies that were previously bright, coloured, splendid, now dull, faded, lifeless. Caducity of things, of living beings, of feelings. But then I saw a cascade of capers: bad name, sour taste but shiny, bright leaves and incredibly delicate flowers. (Pina Delrio, 2015)

Per Lorenzo. Una nuova Luce in questo mondo
