Interlude 1 00:29
Doug: Landscapes is really a project of study: like an archaeologist that brushes the dust and reveals the keys and symbols, I listen, read, analyse, copy . . . reappropriate the works of these composers.

Interlude 2 00:31
Luca: My approach will be focusing not only about piano technique but more about sound technique. With that, I mean that I would probably change colours depending on what I get from digging deep into the scores. Each composition will have its own sound universe, different and unique.

Interlude 3 00:31
Doug: Luca's work is much more than simply performing. He contributes to the project by injecting his own DNA and personality into the music and makes it the work of two people: the composer and the performer.

Interlude 4 00:36
Luca: I am changing the tempo five times. Going through the score, I had an idea that this could totally be a ballet sort of variation. The phrasing and the way the tempo signature changes made me grow this idea: the notion of the piano version that Prokofiev made of his own Romeo and Juliet ballet suite; but, they came to my mind as far as I was going deep into the composition.

about

Landscapes is the companion oeuvre to Portraits. This time, Doug Thomas has entrusted his compositions to Luca Longobardi who has brought them spectacularly to life. As on Portraits, each piece on Landscapes is a sketch of composers from the last four centuries (here, the titles refer to their birthplaces). In the hands of Luca, they are transformed in unexpected ways, his interpretations of Doug's scores simultaneously reverent and defiant.
