Höstsonaten’s “Winterthrough” is a concept album from prog mastermind Fabio Zuffanti (Finisterre, Maschera di Cera), the 3rd section of “Seasoncycle Suite”, a musical celebration in four movements of seasons power, and features a long instrumental suite of nearly 46 minutes divided in several movements.
The musicians involved in the project mainly come from Finisterre and Maschera Di Cera and are Fabio Zuffanti, Alessandro Corvaglia, Maurizio Di Tollo, Edmondo Romano, Roberto Vigo and Matteo Nahum.
We’re not afraid to say that this one of the best records coming from Fabio’s immense talent. Marvellous symphonic movements, highly influenced by top-notch instrumentals of Italian ’70s bands, sometimes dreamy and pastoral, sometimes epic, but always highly emotional. And what a Mellotron! This is Italian prog as we love it, a must-have for lovers of Finisterre and Maschera di Cera but also a great way to get into Fabio Zuffanti’s music.
For us the record of 2008, and a masterpiece that will be truly remembered.
Picture LP edition, printed in 500 hand-numbered copies and including a bonus track.
