Corciolli's PIANO SOLOS SONGBOOK
"Fresh, melodic, expressive !! A great addition for piano teachers and lovers of piano music!" ~ Penka Kouneva Hollywood Composer, PhD
Corciolli is a Brazilian musician and composer. He has sold close to 2 million CDs in his native country of Brazil alone and his albums have been released in 40 countries. His work brazenly mixes genres and conventions, unafraid to add western operatic sweep to eastern New Age ambience and vice versa. His melodies are simple but inspiring, supported by orchestral arrangements that blend the sounds of electronic synthesizers with acoustic instruments. Some of his work has been featured on international compilation albums alongside artists like Hans Zimmer, Vangelis, Enigma, Sarah Brightman, Alan Parsons Project and Luciano Pavarotti.
Corciolli released his first recording "All That Binds Us" in 1993, founding the successful Independent Azul Music label, which celebrates 20 years in business this year. These days Corciolli's main focus is on composing soundtracks for film, producing new artists and his own solo career.
Corciolli is endorsed by Yamaha Corporation.
Infinito by Corciolli
With over thirty albums successfully released over the past two decades, Corciolli begins a new era with INFINITO. It is an organic blend of electronic textures, orchestral layers and uplifting melodies, very visual, with a strong approach to film soundtrack qualities and dreamy atmospheres.
INFINITO’s 14 tracks include 10 new compositions by Corciolli like the oneiric ballad Dream of Us; the bossa nova mood on Mono No Aware that radiates with Japanese music influences, or the passionate crossover tango San Telmo, featuring cinematic percusssions. Included are exquisite arrangements of 4 of Brazil's immortal songs: Villa-Lobos Melodia Sentimental; Jobim´s bossa nova hit Se Todos Fossem Iguais à Você; Dolores Duran´s A Noite do Meu Bem (1959´s biggest BR radio hit) and Lamartine Babo´s Eu Sonhei Que Tu Estavas Tão Linda, a wonderful waltz from the 30´s.
Enhancing Corciolli’s subtle piano playing and array of synthesizers are special guests soprano Gracieli Valverde, saxofonist Ma3 and Leonardo Padovani on the violin and er-hu. INFINITO’s melodies are extraordinarily inspired, powered by orchestral arrangements and the liveliness of cinematic percussions. The album cover was designed by Poland’s digital artist Michal Karcz, who has been praised worldwide for his stunning images.

Lightwalk by Corciolli
This is an imaginative and diverse offering from Corciolli. Where Corciolli's music is usually associated with a meditative style, with LIGHTWALK, the eighth album in a successful discography, he enters a new phase musically, gathering elements of Progressive Rock, Brazilian Music, World and New Age, emphasizing the rhythmic support of drums, bass and percussion. Featuring a stellar team of guest musicians, the result is a distinctly different and fascinating album. Corciolli has created eleven original compositions for Lightwalk.

Nosso Lar (The Astral City) by Corciolli
Corciolli continues to express his fondness for spiritual themes in THE ASTRAL CITY by using the universal language of music to call forth feelings of beauty and everlasting knowledge. Inspired by the spiritualist best-seller Nosso Lar, one of the main concepts addressed in the book is the belief that life goes on after the death of the physical body. Based around that theme, Corciolli developed his first ideas for this CD using electronic synthesizers along with piano and harp acoustic sonorities and a variety of orchestral timbres. The arrangements were created in a diversity of sound including a string ensemble made up of members from internationally acclaimed orchestras. The result exceeds all expectations. Not only new, subtle, beautiful shades were incorporated to the arrangements, but it all was taken to a higher level of emotional expression. The album blends, with grace and lightness, moments of nostalgia, lovingness and enchantment, giving the listener the sensation of joy before the Divine Creation.

The Harmony of Feng Shui by Corciolli
THE HARMONY OF FENG SHUI is a relaxing journey... designed as the ultimate in new age ambience. Corciolli blends ethnic acoustic instruments from his native land and from the Far East. The atmospheres are vast and dense. It fits Brian Eno's definition. It is interesting enough for deep listening and innocuous enough to be ignored. It also fits the standard new age philosophies of peace, love, and harmony. This disc will appeal to fans of Stephan Baer, Al Gromer Khan, Jorge Alfano, and Dean Evenson." ~ Jim Brenholts ALL MUSIC GUIDE
Corciolli's SOUNDS OF NATURE is consistently one of Azul Music's best sellers. Corciolli has recorded piano and sounds of nature, and each title track is represented by one natural element.

Corciolli uses ethereal tunes, pianos, sequencers, keyboards, bird sounds, voice timbres, water and other nature sounds, percussion, and steel guitar. Recommended if you like Enya.
Healing Through Colors by Corciolli
HEALING THROUGH COLORS presents music for therapeutic usage, in this case, color therapy. It is intended to be used with application sessions, visualization exercises, and the harmonization of the ambient and emotional state. Corciolli used several keyboards, synthesizers, loops, arpeggios, bamboo flute timbre, pianos, and different effects to enrich the sound of the colors.
Reiki Energy by Corciolli
Reiki means vital energy (ki) emanating from universal wisdom (Rei). The technique's origin was in the Orient (Japan). It is a technique of the placement of hands, through which flows the energy of the universe, making possible the transformation and balance of the people that receive it. REIKI is continuous soft music, proper for Reiki applications, with a simple touch of a Tibetan bell every five minutes, indicating the change of the hands position.
The Balance of Yoga by Corciolli
Using synthesizers only, Corciolli has produced a deep and introspective piece of work aimed at helping to bring the consciousness to a state of serenity with lengthy ambient and space music atmospheres of a meditative nature. Soft keyboards, guitar tunes, bird and water sounds, contemplative synthesizers, flutes, harmony, and a careful arrangement and production make this appropriate for both the Yoga apprentice and for general relaxation.
Music of the Shamans by Corciolli
Shamanism has its origins in the practice of the healing rituals of American Indians. Invoking the help of natural spirits, the Shaman (the leader of the healing ritual) establishes a magic link between man and nature. They believe that this link will renovate spiritual and physical health. Full of percussion, sequencers, tribal effects, bamboo flutes, water and bird sounds, and electronic drums, this CD (the first of the tudoazul series, composed of a total of ten CDs) delivers music intended to re-create the atmosphere of a genuine ceremony.
Sea Motion by Corciolli
Review by Cesar Lanzarini ALL MUSIC GUIDE "The sea is the origin of life, symbol of the unconscious. The motion of the waves and the dolphin and whale songs produce a harmonic soundtrack for well being, relaxing tensions and reinforcing energies. Using the music as an idiom and translating the sensation of a walk on the beach or a boat ride on the water, this CD introduces soft melodies followed by the natural sounds of water. Corciolli also used other sounds, such as gulls, whales, dolphins, and waves, accompanied by electric piano, keyboards, synthesizers, chords, and sequencers. All this atmosphere enriches this work, complemented by the each of the tracks' titles, which are directly related to the theme (e.g., "Infinite Sea" and "Our Friends Dolphins") and the cover art. This is the second release from the Tudo Azul series, whose main objective is to create music for relaxation and meditation."
The Music of the Celts
This is a unique CD. Corciolli is not imitating Celtic music. He is interpreting its attitudes and their effects on him. Only one of the tunes remotely resembles an Irish dance tune or a reel…and that piece is more atmospheric than rhythmic. These are ballads and light airs.
