A beautiful, relaxing album of classical guitar and flute music featuring original pieces, along with classical, Latin and traditional selections.
1. Pavane - a sensuous excursion into French music, full of exoticism and lush harmony by Gabriel Faure.
2. Simple Pleasures - a new arrangement for guitar and flute of a composition by Danny Infantino from the album Simple Pleasures.
3. Black Orpheus - this classic Latin tune by Brazilian composer Luis Bonfa was written as part of his film score for Orfeu Negro (Black Orpheus).
4. O mio caro - a beautiful aria by Giacomo Puccini is from the opera Gianni Schicchi, first performed in 1918.
5. Andante: “Winter” - from Antonio Vivaldi’s most recognized work, The Four Seasons, this lovely Andante is appropriately stark and mercifully short, but nonetheless quite lovely.
6. Danny’s Bossa - an original in the bossa nova style
7. Lullaby for Weymouth - composed in 2007 by Danny Infantino, this piece was used as the theme music for a staged reading of letters by James Boyd and his contemporaries presented at Weymouth, Boyd’s former estate in Southern Pines, NC.
8. Andante: Concerto in G - another lovely piece by Antonio Vivaldi, originally written for two mandolins.
9. Sogni d’oro (Golden Dreams) - a gentle lullaby by Danny Infantino combining guitar, flute, and oboe.
10. Rising Sun - The Blues classic, usually played slow and bluesy, has been jazzed up a bit.
11. Danny Boy - this traditional piece stands alone here as a flute solo.
12. Evening Star - a recomposed, rearranged, and re-recorded version of an earlier composition by Danny Infantino, is more tranquil and sonorous than the original “Of Stars that Brightly Shine,” from an earlier Christmas album.
