Praise for Exile
“Exile as a record really shines! Sparkling, marvellous” – Rolling Stone
“another stunningly effective work” – PopMatters
“This isn’t ambient or classical music to have washing over the background, it’s involving and vital.” – DjMag
Praise for Consequences
“‘Consequences’ is magnificent. The saturated sound of the violin and the sweet sound of the piano follow each other until they combine in an explosive finale.” – Tsugi
Praise for Like We Were
“It’s an achingly wistful song, and the imagery from the video here does nothing to dispel these shadows of the past. The piano is left to speak through the muted overtones of a few simple chords, and cascades of arpeggio. The faces are both familiar, and strangely archaic, as are the isolated sounds of piano and a masterclass in string arrangement.” – Chillfiltr
Luca D’Alberto is a classical composer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist from the heart of Italy. His music is visceral with a life beyond itself, cinematic yet personal.
2017 saw the release of ‘Endless’, D’Alberto’s first recording for newly-formed 7K!. At its heart, ‘Endless’ is a blood and guts reimagining of what neo-classical can be, passionate and daring, music that jumps out from the shadows at you. Every instrument on the album is performed by D’Alberto himself, with album is engineering by Martyn Heyne and additional production by Henrik Schwarz.
Film makers, dance companies and theatres have all seen this life in D’Alberto’s music, with luminaries such as Wim Wenders, Donata Wenders, Fernando Arrabal, Peter Lindbergh, Lars Von Trier’s Zentropa and Manuel Huerta having all praised his stirring music and approach to his art. As a composer and performer, D’Alberto has also collaborated with numerous events and leading figures including the prestigious Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch for the Pina40 Festival, and with Giorgio Albertazzi, Michele Placido and Costanza Quatriglio on Sembra Mio Figlio, 9X10 Novanta and Lampedusani with Erri De Luca . In 2015 the Jewish Museum in Berlin featured Peter Greenaway and Saskia Boddeke’s film Obedience, a 15-room installation with music composed by D’Alberto. “Chtchoukine, Matisse, la Danse et la Musique,” the most recent collaboration of Greenaway, Boddeke and D’Alberto is currently on display at The Louis Vuitton Foundation, Paris.
