VirgilDonati DawnOfTime

The new album release from Virgil Donati, The Dawn of Time, places the drums at the center of a vast, contemporary orchestral production. A combination of amazing musicians and orchestral virtual instruments bring to life this massive musical undertaking. The orchestral instrumentation, textures, timbres, create a soundscape that beautifully enhances the rhythmic explorations of the drums. The bass and drums are the driving force behind this music, with the orchestra arousing emotions, taking the listener on a transcendent journey. The album also features Virgil playing piano on all tracks, including his first solo piano composition, Prelude No.1.

"The Dawn Of Time has been a monumental work for me to complete, the culmination of many years of work," says Donati. "For this huge enterprise, I made a decision against the trend of crowd funding, devoting all my time and effort to the writing and playing of the music itself. To this end, your support is invaluable."

Released on September 15, 2016, The Dawn of Time is now available through the Drummer Cafe via
