Do we need another minimalist soundtrack to an imaginary movie? I’d have been inclined to answer in the negative but I’m prepared to make an exception for this beautiful, calming album which aptly derives its title from the Spanish musical term to describe the play of light and shade. Bruno Sanfilippo is a Barcelona-based classically-trained musician who has released an impressive back catalogue of slow ambient piano tunes. Previous reviewers have understandably drawn comparisons to modern composers such as Max Richter and Arvo Pärt. ClarOscuro is billed as his first composition work for a trio although many of the nine tracks still feature just solo piano. He is joined by Manuel del Fresno on cello and Pere Bardagi on violin. The arrangements, like the digipack design package, are elegant, understated and uncluttered; a fine example of the old adage that less is more.
