"Classical music will always be with us, and as Massimo proves, there's room to build on it."
A drummer, who excels at a variety of styles, Massimo Aiello sinks his sticks into the mind of Beethoven here on this fascinating disc. Adding drums to the great opera may seem pretty surrealistic, but as Massimo asserts in the liner notes, he's simply paying respect to the master for his contributions to mankind. I'm no authority on Beethoven, yet I definitely appreciate what I hear and commend Massimo for his enterprising approach. How amazing it is that these stunning pieces of music remain so timeless after so many decades. Classical music will always be with us, and as Massimo proves, there's room to build on it. "Tribute To Beethoven - Drum In The Symphony No. 9" is truly an accomplishment. www.azzurramusic.it
