Dear Torontonians Internations members,
PFM, Premiata Forneria Marconi, the legendary Italian band is coming back in Toronto at The Music Hall on Danforth next november 19th after the successful show of Protected content .
If you are not familiar with PFM here below few notes:
The pioneer of Italian Progressive groups, PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI (PFM for short) is one of the leaders of the 70s prog movement. PFM developed a style which is uniquely Italian while maintaining links with the rest of the prog world. A lyrical, romantic and delicate music, full of fineness. A great melodic and instrumental richness, somptuous compositions and arrangements. Sometimes compared with the early KING CRIMSON, the group had its own musical personality, with its elegant music.
Rated by Melody Maker, the well known UK music magazine, better "Brightest Hope" in Protected content bands such Supertramp, Eagles and Camel, they used to record internationally for Manticore, the Emerson Lake & Palmer's owned label, being produced by Pete Sinfield, the King Crimson poet.
"Per Un Amico" ("Photos of Ghosts") and "L'Isola Di Niente" as well as their first, "Storia Di Un Minuto" are all virtual classics of progressive music, obviously influenced by early KING CRIMSON and GENESIS yet sounding nothing like them. The instrumentation is superb with fluid guitar, highly original synthesizer sounds, beautiful violin and flute, and ethereal vocals that are so important to the music.
Here couple of clips from youtube:
