Goffredo Orlandi, ASCAP(100.00%)
With Orchestral Soundscapes Vol. 2, new composer Goffredo Orlandi presents a diverse palette of haunting melodies and cinematic moods. The exquisite orchestral arrangement and strong emotional pull of Orlandi’s compositions is ever present on this captivating volume. For instance, delicate strings and soft piano carry a beautiful melody with an introspective, reminiscent feel on “The Moon of Italy”. The boisterous call-and response between woodwinds, timpani, strings, and voices on “Over the Stars” is spellbinding. With a turbocharged horn section bolstered by furious percussion and forebodingly dissonant piano, “He Never Sleeps” is fueled by a tone of urgency. The picturesque musical atmospheres to be found on Orchestral Soundscapes Volume 2 are sure to inspire passion and transport audiences.
