“A defining feature of Astrea is
its atypical trio instrumentation. Paradoxically, the absence of a bass
player both opens the music up and makes it more lush and dense.
Cigalini uses his organizing principles to create a framework of form.
Because his players have what he calls an “itinerary”, they are able to
unleash passion and pursue fresh iterations of beauty in the moment.” (Thomas Conrad)
