The Heart of Wax

Single CD

Ictus 301

Andrea Centazzo


"The heart of Wax" is a ballet music scored for strings quartet, clarinets, flutes, saxophones, piano, double bass, keyboards and percussion.
Based on the surrealist painter Alberto Martini libretto and sketches, has been composed by Centazzo for the first staging of the un-issued ballet. A new dimension in ballet music. Re-mastered for this edition.


The careful choices in timbre along with the hypnotic, ethereal effect of his rhythmic layering catapults the listener into a world of sonic serenity, enveloped in warmth. While each individual movement of The Heart of Wax stands on its own as a distinct musical statement, the resulting whole performed with seamless perfection, is a bold statement from an under appreciated visionary.
