About the song they say: We are glad to share with you our brand new song ‘Tragic Serenade’ and thank again the mighty Douglas R. Docker for another literary masterwork! Some months ago, our creator/producer Mistheria chose the wonderful Franz Schubert‘s masterpiece ‘Serenade’ to be included in the new Vivaldi Metal Project‘s album. The melody idea started together with some words popping out in Mistheria‘s mind. He came up with the first four rows of this text, based on a true story. The next day, Mistheria called the lyric-master Douglas R. Docker to continue and develop his rough idea/concept giving words to this new arrangement/composition for the Vivaldi Metal Project. That’s how ‘Tragic Serenade’ was born.
Vivaldi Metal Project‘s album “The Four Seasons” is released on July 22nd 2016 via Pride & Joy Music.
The project is a symphonic-metal opera based on Antonio Vivaldi’s Baroque masterwork “The Four Seasons”, featuring more than 130 amazing metal and classical artists, orchestra, a string quartet and three choirs from all over the world. The album features 14 tracks – all the movements from Antonio Vivaldi’s original score plus two original new songs written by Mistheria. The impressive roster of artists probably makes this titanic album the biggest all-star project ever!
A cast of ten arrangers joined Mistheria creating epic and memorable music, combining a standard metal band lineup with strings, orchestra and choir. Full arrangers/artists roster at vivaldimetalproject.com
It took more than 2 years of intensive non-stop hard work to get the album done. Mixed and mastered by Ivan Moni Bidin at “Artesonika” recording studio in Italy and assisted by Fabio D’Amore, the album is a full 75 minutes of intense, passionate, fascinating, powerful and majestic experience!
