“You can consider it an album of songs, some with words (just a few) and some not …an album of love songs …about how much love can say about us and our world …love as a knowledge …love as a deep, very deep, knowledge …and music the same …they say that music is emotion, sense …yes, i agree …but music is knowledge too, my better way to try to understand the world and his enigmas …it is science …and love the same

Renaissance French and English music, portuguese folk songs, Schubert’s, Mahler’s, Fauré’s, Debussy’s, Messiaen’s, Takemitsu’s, Rapp’s, & Bates’s musics guided me in this enterprise

…and she.

—Marco Lucchi (Modena, 2008)
