The Great Gianni Fallabrino and Momenti Musicali from 1973

The album Progetto Europa was the first I heard from him and turned out to be just a delight of masterful library inventiveness.  So thereafter I tried to seek out the remainder of his discography.

On this 1973 library release there is some gorgeous classical chamber music with cello & guitar.  A surprise to hear so much texture with only a duet.  As usual, the melodic bowed cello conjures some of the most plaintive, melancholy, and expressive emotions fit for the standard human brain.

Consider for ex., the track called Third World:

And of course it's quite reminiscent of my old favourite Luciani, from whose work I posted 6 LPs in the past.

Cello – Nazareno Cicoria
Classical Guitar – Veraldo Paolini
