«Gli Elementi» (The Elements) - This work draws its inspiration from the four primary elements in nature, which are: earth, water, air and fire.

«La terra» (earth) is a manifest to mother earth which provides life for all flora and fauna on the planet. The music has a distinct Baroque flavour and can also be seen as a homage to the great Baroque composers such as J.S. Bach, A. Vivaldi, G.F. Händel or G.Ph. Telemann, to name but a few. All these composers were in fact providing the “soil” for making our modern music world, as we know it today, grow and flourish.


«L’acqua» (water), is inspired by the music of Frédéric Chopin (1831-1849). His music, in my view, has the beautiful motion and playfulness reminiscent of a flowing stream.

«L’aria» (air), has the freshness of an early morning walk on a beautiful spring’s day. What better way to musically describe this serene scene if not by a pinch of Classical music! I can just see “Papa Haydn” winking an eye and smiling, as he passes us on our walk.

«Il fuoco» (fire) is written in the style of a “fire dance” – a ritual dance around a blazing fire. This music was inspired by the Spanish composer Manuel De Falla (1876-1946) and his world famous “Ritual Firedance” from the ballet “El amor brujo”.
