Italy's Antimo Magnotta releases 'Inner Landscape'; album documents a remarkable life of tragedy and hope
“Spellbinding” - Jeremy Vine – BBC Radio 2
“Antimo Magnotta is a composer and a naturally talented musician” - Nick Curtis – The Times
Antimo Magnotta was resident pianist aboard the cruise ship, the Costa Concordia, when it tragically sank in 2012, claiming 32 lives. Miraculously surviving the shipwreck, which took the lives of some of his fellow musicians, he lost his possessions, career and his marriage. For the sake of his young daughter, Antimo moved to the UK to re-build his life, taking a waiter’s job in order to provide for them. A remarkable chain of events led to him becoming pianist-in-residence at the Victoria & Albert Museum’s Café, where he finally found time to document musically the extraordinary events of the past few years. Magnotta’s courage, artistry and inspirational story-telling are all evident in his latest album: Inner Landscape.
Inner Landscape has been created to reflect Antimo’s emotions both during and in the wake of the Costa Concordia disaster. The album is his tribute to those lost aboard the Costa Concordia, projecting both his thoughts and conveying the scene he saw around him.
Inner Landscape Released 15th March 2018
