24 Luglio 2018 – Fabulae – Steve Hackett ( Guitarist/Songwriter/Singer and Producer- Genesis- UK )
Hi Paola, I have now had a chance to listen to your music, which is magical and atmospheric. You are welcome to quote my above words . With very best wishes.
2018 – Fabulae – Regina Lake ( Wife of Greg Lake – Frontman of King Crimson and ELP – UK )

I have a great Admiration for the passion and determination you have to make your Dreams come true. I believe in You and may you find all the rewards that Success brings. You deserve it. Much Love.
2018 – Fabulae – Juri Camisasca ( Cantautore/ Pittore di Icone – Italia ) Ciao Paola, ho ascoltato il tuo CD. Mi è piaciuto molto. Testi importanti ben cantato e ben suonato. Ottime le sonorità. Ho apprezzato anche il brano di Lanzetti. Ti auguro la miglior fortuna e tanto bene.
2018 – Fabulae – José Pulido ( Poeta/ Scrittore/ Giornalista – Venezuela ) La voz y la musica de Paola Tagliaferro tocai las profundidades más sensibles del ser humano y logran desertar emociones esenciales, tan antiguas come el corazón. Y por si fuera poco, atraviesan el alma con los sonidos más sublimes de la diversidad cultural.
2018 – Fabulae – Claudio Pozzani ( Poeta/ Presidente del Festival Internazionale di Poesia di Genova – Italia ) In un epoca strettamente materiale anche nell’arte, l’album etereo e spirituale di paola Tagliaferro è un’oasi. Nelle undici tracce di Fabulae ( Più due guest track) si disvela l’universo classico fatto di creature alate, tempi sospesi, profumi inebrianti, paesaggi fantastici, un universo ispirato da fiabe, koan zen, mitologia, cerimonie scismatiche, ma anche da testi come 2 Donne che corrono con i lupi” di Estès. Le musica, curate e raffinate, seguono coerentemente le narrazioni cantate o recitate dalla limpida voce di Paola moltiplicando la portata delle atmosfere evocate. in particolare si elevano sulle altre composizioni ” La Pelle dell’Anima” per la sua melodia cantabile e l’invocazione de ” La stanza di Barbablù” ( Muro di Pietra, Porta Girevole), che dà la linea filosofica dell’album.
3 May 2012 – Milioni di Lune – Peter Sinfield ( Poeta/ Musicista/ Produttore discografico / King Crimson/ ELP/ Greg Lake …UK)
Paola and Max asked me, late last summer, to write a short poem as the basis for a piece of music to appear on Paula’s next album. After a while I was pleased to be able to write back to Paula. “I have had this in mind for sometime and managed to finish writing it this morning. Its a sort of double haiku with a chorus line & it is based on a picture taken of my garden just when I started to remodel it in 2003. I have been saving it for a special occasion.”
I think the music which they then ‘painted’ around my words is exquisite and I told them so; mentioning that, with my producer’s hat on, I personally would have made the piece a little less of a ‘crescendo’ and a little more of an ‘aqueduct’ with perhaps a hint of breeze to ripple the branches…Caught! Before I knew it, despite a case of laryngitis, I was recording a few arches and pillars for them to drop into the track. It seems to have worked quite well (which is good because I am now in the middle of doing a handful of similar vocals.) I will admit I wasn’t sure about Angelo Contini’s trombone at first but I am now thrilled when I hear its deep texture.
The bass of Franz Soprani, who shot the footage of me reciting in Genoa, is a smiling, bouncing ball: a delight. Which leaves…um…oh yes the video. Well no wonder Francesco Paolo Paladino won the prize for Short Movie at last years Cannes Festival his work is magic. It is technically and visually a perfect enchantment. I am very proud to have been part of this interesting project with its overtones of ancient and modern. Bravo to all and I hope we can do another before too long. Now here are the credits and finally the words … the seeds.
