Vivaldi Metal Project’s first record “The Four Seasons” revolved around the concept of the various “seasons” of the human life – from birth to death. As a continuation of the last, this new album explores the “seasons” of our emotional experience as human beings – from joys to sorrows and from frailty to deep strength. Each song creates a rich musical tapestry expressing the “colours” of raw human emotion, while weaving a common thread throughout the album.
“EpiClassica” not only features classical masterworks by Vivaldi, but the works of other great composers such as F. Chopin, J. S. Bach, G. Fauré, F. Schubert, J. Brahms, F. Liszt, C. Saint-Saens, A. Dvořák, L. V. Beethoven, W. A. Mozart, and T. Albinoni. While based on classical themes, these songs are largely composed of original material, representative of Vivaldi Metal Project’s symphonic-metal style.
This new album comprises the group’s largest cast of musicians to-date with vocalists, band, orchestra and choir on every track. Most notably, EpiClassica boasts a massive roster of renowned classical and metal artists including Mike Portnoy, Rob Rock, Jeff Scott Soto, Mike Terrana, Mark Boals, Roy Z (B.
