Review – Acqua Fragile – A New Chant – by James R. Turner

They may be a new name to you, they certainly were to me, but Italy’s Acqua Fragile were originally active between 1971 & 1975, and vocalist Bernardo Lanzetti joined PFM for their ‘Chocolate Kings’ and ‘Jet Lag’ albums, leaving in 1977.

The catalyst for this reunion record came when Bernardo celebrated his career with his Vox 40 concert, and the revived band consists of Bernardo Lanzetti (vocals, animoog, guitars) Pierro Canavera (drums/percussion/backing vocals) and Franz Dodi (electric bass), as well as guest musicians like Jonathon Mover (on opener My Forte) drummer Alexander Mori (son of original keyboard player Maurizio Mori) as well as members of the Acqua Fragile Project, a collaboration put together by Franz Dodi of younger musicians playing the original music of Acqua Fragile.

ACCLAIMED COMPOSER AND VIRTUOSO CELLIST JO QUAIL ADDED TO AMENRA & BORIS UK TOUR

Fresh from opening for Myrkur over the past week, as well as joining her on stage in her Folkesange project, internationally acclaimed composer and virtuoso cellist Jo Quail has been added to the UK leg of the upcoming Amenra and Boris European tour. Jo comments:

“Supporting Amenra and Boris on the UK leg of their co-headline EU tour – WOW! I cannot wait! It is a true privilege to play these concerts.  I’m a soloist, and I perform my music that sits somewhere between contemporary classical, post-rock, avant garde and experimental. It is an honour to be invited to open the stage for two genre-defying bands who are masters of their craft, who have been and continue to be revolutionary in their individual approach to composition, performance and musical ethos and who reach in to the depths of being both spiritually and sonically.
