Grimaldi is a graduate in piano and composition from Salerno, Paris and Rome.
This album is a collection of the Italian artist's "intimate compositions of his musical path" from 1999 to 2015.
The fifteen tracks recorded in France contain no studio trickery or additional instrumentation.
Instead we hear melodic piano pieces, mostly of four or five minutes duration, that are beautifully played but display no real drama and precious little variation.
It's impossible to criticize the man's technique but it begs the question: Where is the soul?
