L'Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio - Sona (2006)

«15 musicians from 11 countries and 3 continents, speaking in 8 different languages thrown together to create an absolutely novel music. World Music in the true sense of the word, music from Planet Earth, the globe in its entirety. The Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio represents a unique experience, perhaps the first of its kind. Each musician brought to the orchestra their instruments and personal backgrounds of traditional music creating a fusion of cultures, old and new sounds, unknown instruments, memories, distant yet universal melodies, and voices from around the world. And when the orchestra begins to play, rhetoric goes out the window, swept away by the sheer carnal and visceral force of their music, which eclipses vague discussions of “good” and “right”. It is evocative music that manages to be free and structured at the same time, bound to millennial traditions and yet open to the future. Music that gets hands clapping and entrances a broad range of listeners, from the more refined to the more distracted. Music you can sing to, dance to, and listen to in peace and quiet. Music that belongs to everyone, for everyone. The Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio is a “product” without a target. A marvellous anomaly in the contaminated sea of pop music that can’t be pigeonholed into a specific category. There’s an entire world there for the understanding and enjoyment: free your minds and listen. Since its debut in November 2002, the Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio has performed in over 250 concerts in Italy and abroad including New York, Buenos Aires, Paris, Melbourne, Vienna, the Berlin Jazz Festival, Köln, Nuremberg, and Switzerland. It has produced 2 CDs, their debut album L’Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio in 2004 and Sona in 2006, as well as the CD Made in Piazza Vittorio which can be found in the special edition DVD set. “The Orchestra di Piazza Vittorio” is also the name of our feature-length film: a film-diary that narrates the genesis of the Orchestra.» (OPV’s MySpace site)
