    David Ianni’s Songs of Love is his most important piano work up-to-date. Work on the cycle began in 2015. Of the three volumes, two have been completed by 2019. Each volume consists of 24 pieces through all major and minor keys, reflecting the different facets of life. While every piece is a complete, beautifully crafted little work in its own right, with its individual architecture, atmosphere and compositional technique, the 24 miniatures of each cycle have been conceived to be performed and listened to as a whole. A selection of different “Songs of Love” has been featured in David’s MY URBAN PIANO project. The cycle has been the result of David’s lifelong pursuit of expressing the inexpressible through music. David Ianni’s “musical declarations of love to life” never cease to surprise, delight and comfort the hearts of the listener.
