I'm very excited to present a new single release, the premier US recording of Claudio Rosati's work Divine Image. It's a beautiful piece, written originally for piano, cello and soprano sax. I'm very thankful for Claudio's gracious permission to let me release it.

Claudio was kind enough to send me his Notion file, which I modified for recording purposes and exported into Studio One for final mixing and mastering. The instruments used were Ivory Italian Grand Studio Piano, C MP Vintage Bandoneon (which I felt lent an intimate theatrical/cabaret feel) and Embertone Blakus Cello.

The piano part is written for four hands, and that was a recording challenge which I enjoyed. I created two identical piano instruments and placed them very carefully using MirPro stage emulation software, and then used both the Ivory's settings for playing technique and Studio One's Humanize function to get variation between the lower and the upper players to make them sound realistic.
