My piano compositions are essentially a musical diary. Just like a journal, each track relates to a specific event, emotion or thought and is told straightforwardly – but never superficially – through the notes. The album RINASCITA is the first collection of these kind of compositions and it expresses the necessity and desire to share with others what was first conceived as an intimate thing. Paradoxically, I believe that music may be able to speak to everyone when it arises from a single life experience, so that it fecundates and takes on new meanings.

RINASCITA is a musical diary best listened to with closed eyes so that one can fully reflect on the thoughts, memories and emotions being conveyed. The album is a collection of ten pieces, composed and played by Paolo Cognetti. Each piece corresponds to a particular life event or private reflection, told with immediacy and depth through the notes. Thus, Paolo generously shares his secrets to those with sensitive ears, who wish to have their hearts opened by the black and white keys. As if by magic, what was originally conceived as an intimate and personal journey transforms itself into something capable of speaking to everyone, resembling anyone’s experience and taking on new and universal meaning through the piano. The desire to realise the magic of sharing with other human beings through music is the energy that gives life to RINASCITA.
