“Remembrance of things past is not necessarily the remembrance of things as they were.” – Marcel Proust
How our very own memories sometimes can slip away and deceive us can seem as the ultimate treachery. When a thought or idea that was there a minute ago – as clear as day – the next second is completely gone can also serve as the frightening evidence of all things impermanence.
The idea that our memories are floating islands of thought, morphing and mutating over time, has been the inspiration for the Italian composer and pianist Federico Albanese's latest musical venture.
“There are multiple ways in which we perceive a memory,” says Albanese, who grew up in Milan and now calls Berlin home. “We might remember things from different angles and give them different meanings.”
”I find it interesting to explore the instant where we decide how we are going to remember something. And music is the vehicle I use to find these moments, to hold them in time.”
These moments, captured in sound on his forthcoming album ”Before and Now Seems Infinite”, acts as the foundation for Albanese’s European tour, where he visits London, Berlin, Paris as well as us at Kvarnen.
We are proud to welcome you to an unusual Wednesday evening, with healthy and delicious food as well as a breath-taking and intimate musical experience.

’Before And Now Seems Infinite’ is Albanese’s third studio album, following 2018’s By The Deep Sea and his soundtrack to the 2019 documentary Twelve, with its timely themes of spirituality, ecology and community. The album serves as his third separate release on the post-classical pop imprint Mercury KX, which hosts other virtuosos such as Ólafur Arnalds, Anoushka Shankar, Jean-Michel Blais and Isobel Waller-Bridge.
