The third album of the ONJ offers an exciting foray into contemporary music.
Through two original pieces written specially for the Orchestra, Benjamin de la Fuente and Andrea Agostini deliver a highly personal vision of Rome that borrows from souvenirs and reawakened emotions, and from their own intimate rapport with the city. Two contrasted works that oscillate between high-voltage outbursts, irresistible orchestral masses, and more melancholy, intimate passages, improvisations and rock explosions included… EUROPA ROME, a new album guaranteed to muddy the trail of music genres!
