The summer in Siena will be enlivened by Daniele Silvestri's concert; the famous singer and composer will perform on 25th August in the city of Palio, on the stage inside the Fortezza Medicea, during the annual festival organized by the PD party.
Siena's concert is included in the "S.c.o.t.c.h. Tour", which opened in Andria on 21st May, together with other concerts all along the country during the whole Summer. Silvestri's new CD has been published after a long silence: his previous work - "Il latitante" - actually dates back to 2007, and in 2008 he released just a greatest hits album, called "Monetine".
The long wait was worthwhile: "S.c.o.t.c.h." is a surprising CD, ironic and natural, including different sonorities.
It was recorded almost totally live, together with many guest stars: Nicolò Fabi – who sings Sornione" a ballad he composed, recalling a dialogue between friends – we also find Stefano Bollani, Andrea Camilleri, Gino Paoli, Raiz. The album is direct, immediate, the different genres mix well together, even when Daniele sings Gaber's "Io non mi sento italiano" his own way, as well as with social songs ("Precario è il mondo" with Raiz) and political pieces ("Monito(r)").
Irony is the key word in Silvestri's art, the track "La chatta", tries to go over Gino Paoli's famous "La gatta": it deals with an old abandoned chat, surpassed by Facebook.
The CD is definitely precious, avoiding the usual summer tunes like "La paranza" or "Salirò" – which the singer can do very well indeed – Silvestri's work reminds us of his best songs, like the ones composed in the 90's.
