Discovery: Francesco Pirrone

Italian composer Francesco Pirrone really is a musical marvel, having won several awards for his cinematic classical compositions.

Shadow Era Main Theme was composed for the cross-platform trading game Shadow Era, showing just how wide Francesco’s remit is. It’s extremely evocative, with a cinematic bent that sounds like something straight out of a fantasy movie. The track builds up as it progresses, also sounding incredibly beautiful throughout. As you might expect, it’s instrumental in nature, but the music is absolutely beautiful enough on its own. You really need to check this out, even if you’re not into trading card games!
