On The South Wind, Franco Morone presents 14 adaptations of Irish traditionals and compositions by the Irish harpist Turlogh O'Carolan, who lived in the 18th century. At the same time, he treats his instrument in such a sensitive and emotional manner that the listener completely forgets that a brilliant technician is at work here. He masters even the most difficult passages so blithely that it sounds like he had just played them in passing. Jigs, reels, hornpipes - this actually has little to do with fingerstyle guitar music. Yet, with Franco Morone the traditionals virtually blossom and sound as if they had been written just for him. And whether Morone gives a new interpretation of beautiful ballads like "Sheebeg and Sheemore" or dances - jigs and reels like "Merrily Danced The Quaker" and "Turkey In The Straw" - the listener feels like he has suddenly been whisked off to Ireland. Yet, each piece still has Franco Morone's own signature on it, which makes The South Wind an irresistible, relaxing mixture - as relaxing as a ride in an open convertible.
