To coincide with the new album, finally also Riccardo Prencipe’s long deleted 4th album has been re-printed on the project’s own THE STONE OF NAPLES label. The album features guests from Anathema, Daemonia Nymphe, Argine, Ashram…

The original announcement from 2011:
Style: Mediterranean folk, female voices, world music. Fourth album as CORDE OBLIQUE from the Italian guitarist Riccardo Prencipe, previously leader of LVPERCALIA. This amazingly beautiful new masterpiece has been mixed and mastered in a studio in New York for a maximum of quality in sound – and indeed: On this latest opus, the sound is extremely pure. Corde Oblique's musical landscape is like a warm wind from the Mediterranean sea, Folk music tinted of nostalgia, enchanted by Italian female voices. Riccardo welcomes in his line-up the violinist and pianist of Ashram, Argine's drummer, a cellist and exquisite female voices such as the one of Claudia Sorvillo... Like a painter, Prencipe composes a musical painting with many guests as Daemonia Nymphe, the Synaulia (musicians on the movie 'Gladiator'), Anathema's Duncan Patterson, Sergio Pana- ella, singer of Ashram. A special remark deserves the beautiful acoustic cover of Radiohead’s classic 'Jigsaw Falling'. Corde Oblique's music captivates by its grace, its beauty and the strength of his compositions, like a heady perfume.
