"Autumn Stories" is the fourth full-length album from Italian pianist/composer Fabrizio Paterlini. Last year, Paterlini composed, recorded, and released for free on the internet one new song each week, starting on September 21 and ending on December 21, 2011. "Autumn Stories" is a compilation of those fourteen tracks (the physical CD contains three bonus tracks, which I have not heard). In the first three months, the project received more than 18,000 plays and 4,000 downloads - very impressive! The remixed and remastered release includes some electronic textures as well as a string quartet along with Paterlini's grand piano (most of the pieces are solo piano). Sometimes describing his music as "red wine on a summer evening," its melancholy moods communicate deeply, soothing the soul and sparking the imagination. Often compared to Ludovico Einaudi, Paterlini's music isn't overly showy or complicated, but the emotions conveyed go straight to the soul. It is interesting to note that all of the pieces are titled with the week in which they were created ("Week 1-14"), leaving it up to the listener to interpret what each piece is about. Several of the pieces would be perfect in the soundtrack for a moody or deeply-affecting film. I fully expect that "Autumn Stories" will be one of my favorite albums for 2012. It is truly awesome how deeply affecting this music is.

"Week 1" begins with some atmospheric sounds before beginning the dreamy and nostalgic piano melody. "Week 2" is one of those wonderful pieces that would be simple enough for a child to play, but there is no way a child would have the experience to convey the gentle tenderness and emotional depth that the piece expresses. "Week 3," a piano and cello duet, is mournfully sad, almost tragic.

As another week comes to a close I find myself gravitating towards virtue, simplicity and beauty that could be only found in piano music. One of the composers who continues to make an appearance on my rotations, is Mantova based (northern Italy) Fabrizio Paterlini. His piano pieces have enchanted me since his 2010 Fragments Found, which subsequently earned a spot on Headphone Commute's Best of the Year list, Music For Watching The Snow Slowly Fall In The Moonlight. The album was later repackaged and re-released together with Paterlini's 2009 release, Viandanze, as a double disk set. In late September of 2011, Paterlini decided to celebrate the autumn season by writing a piece per week and then share it online with his followers. The project went on for 14 weeks, allowing Paterlini to explore the moods inspired by the season's images and sounds. The resulting compositions have been collected in Autumn Stories, resulting in a wonderful album, full of honesty, harmony and soul. Paterlini's delicate piano vignettes are accompanied with strings by Lotus Quartet, capturing music full of solemn melancholy, mournful sadness and longing heartache. "Making melancholic music makes me feel better", says Paterlini. It makes us feel better too, Fabrizio... so keep it coming! Highly recommended for fans of Dustin O'Halloran, Nils Frahm, Goldmund, Library Tapes and Max Richter.
