To enrich the soft and calm character of these arrangements, nature sounds were added between songs, creating a transparent transition without interruption.

Baby Lullabies

These are delicate songs that can soothe your baby into a calm and relaxed state. In a magic moment of his life becoming a father, the composer recorded a series of songs with total creativeness and sensitivity, based on the moments watching his son falling asleep.  The idea of creating this CD came from his wish to make other children enjoy these same pleasant feelings.

Enhancing Corciolli’s subtle piano playing and array of synthesizers are special guests soprano Gracieli Valverde, saxofonist Ma3 and Leonardo Padovani on the violin and er-hu.
