3 Tolkieniana:
the musical project
A little history
of the project (WiP)
Tolkieniana: the first CD is Ready

The first CD of the cycle Tolkieniana, Musical Journey in the Middle Earth, "Towards Minas Thirit", has been officially presented in the Theatre of the Italian Culture Centre, Brussells, during Tolkien50Years, and it will avalaible from June 1, 2004.

From this page you can read the poems that Frodo performs in the CD and the relative translations, some news about the music pieces and download some little example too. Enjoy!

Here we are!

After many evenings and nights of huge work, I can say to better understand wich tiredness Frodo and Sam have felt in the Lands of Mordor :-)

The first Compact Disk contains 20 musical pieces, of which 10 of pure music, 1 song with the singing of Giuseppe Festa (Lingalad) and 8 poems, with music too, of Frodo Baggins himself (thanks to Davide Perino, the Elijah Wood's voice in Italy), and a bonus track.

Beyond 54 minutes of music, where I hope and believe to have been able to transmit the wonderful sensations and emotions that the Tolkien's reading has donated to me.
