Nico Cartosio, Christmas On The Moon Review
Neo-romantic music incorporates elements from the era of Romanticism and composers who reject, abandon and/or oppose realism, naturalism or avant-garde modernism. What does that sound like? Classical music that is melodic, adventurous in both harmony and melodies, but above all, music that is designed to imitate a high emotional event and/or feeling. One such Neo-romantic composer is Nico Cartosio. Cartosio interacts and hears the world in this manner naturally. He explains, “I do not know where it comes from. Perhaps as a child, I often hit my head when I fell, or maybe I participated in too many fights as a teenager. Since I was a child, I feel people and places in the form of melodies. A girl smiles at me, and I hear how she sounds. It is a specific tune. She frowns and instantaneously, the melody changes in my head, from a flute solo to a cello. Or a young man runs down the street, screaming at someone. I feel his energy, take it as music, and immediately hear the melody in my head.” Cartosio has a new composition out for Christmas titled, “Christmas On The Moon.”

A wonderfully orchestrated composition that flows from light subtly to full power. Cartosio’s melodic flow is astonishing in its emotionalism and beauty.
