Valzer per un Amore – A Great Song by Fabrizio de André – Valzer Campestre by Gino Marinuzzi

Valzer per un Amore – I have discovered this song years ago, and every now and than I need to search for it again. Now I have compiled a post about this song to find it better next time.

The song has been written by Fabrizio de André who is one of the most important singers and composer of songs in Italy. You can find the most important information about Fabrizi de André in the Wikipedia.

The melody of this song is based on a composition by the Italian composer Gino MarinuziValzer Campestre. This is a recording of the Valzer Campestre played by the Banda dell’Arma dei Carabinieri

Valzer Campestre, dalla Suite Siciliana di Gino Marinuzzi.
Qui è eseguito dalla Banda dell’Arma dei Carabinieri.
Una celebre versione è quella di Fabrizio De Andre nel disco Nuvole Barocche.

Il paesaggio che si vede è quello delle campagne fra Aidone (Enna) e Raddusa (Catania)

The song has been published by Fabrizio de André on his album nuvole barocche in 1969, there are many videos with this recording on youtube:

I have found many videos with versions by other artists. I have compiled the best videos in my playlist below. In this playlist you can also find several videos with the original Valzer Campestre by Gino Marinuzzi.

Several videos are based on the version from the album Sogno nº1 with the London Symphony Orchestra and Vinicio Capossella. There is an interesting version played and sung by Beppe Gambetta with guitar, an arrangement for classical guitar by Giuseppe Torrisi, and finally a version with mandolin and guitar:

Peter Pussarnig – Jazz and World Music with Guitar, Mandolin, Baglama, Sitar, Balalaika and more

I have recently discovered some great music by Peter Pussarnig. The sound of the mandolin in the track Anahata from Peter Pussarnigs CD “Autumn Song” inspired me to listen to more music by this artist. In this great video some people were filmed as they heard the track for the very first time – a great idea! In another track – Sarangi Mandolin Didgeridoo – obviously recorded in India Peter Pussarning also plays the mandolin.

Peter Pussarning has studied at the University for Music and Performing Arts in Graz. He plays all kinds of instruments, including guitar, sitar, baglama, mandolin, shanti drum, balalaika, bass and electronics.

I have compiled a playlist with videos by Peter Pussarning and the PP3 Trio. The playlist starts with Anahata. The second video is another great composition with guitar and tabla titled wanderlust.
