More Info:

'Be Yourself' is a quest into the meaning and feeling of being-ness that seems to underline all our experiences. The Music is moved by a deep spiritual question: 'Who am I?' It is a sort of mantra that has inspired the Italian composer over the years during which he has moved to the UK and composed this work. Ilario wishes to leave this question open and let the Musical experience to facilitate an answer that is invariably different from person to person and from time to time. As composer he was fascinated by the possibility of creating an album that would both acknowledge the varied classical literature for piano quintet while exploring the possibility of Jazz improvisation, interplay and modern rhythms between piano and strings. So he composed these two ambitious suites, the second one after his journey in India and the relationship with his partner of south Indian origin. The first suite is based on a classical Rondo, freely interpreted, while for the second suite he has created a personal version of an Indian Yantra to inspire the structure of the work.
