Anna von Hausswolff presents an immersive new video for “Dolore di Orsini.” The track appears on the latest album All Thoughts Fly, out now on Southern Lord.   

The breathtaking new video for “Dolore di Orsini” was directed by Ludvig Holtenäs and Gustaf Holtenäs, with animation effects by Mathias Söderberg

Anna von Hausswolff writes, “‘Dolore di Orsini’ is a song about profound sadness and finding freedom in grief. It’s inspired by the idea that Pier Orsini, a wealthy patron of arts, created the garden Sacro Bosco as a way to cope with grief and loss after losing his wife, Giulia Farnese. I look at the park as a symbol for love where love is an incitement for chaos and harmony. The video depicts Mr. Orsini burying his wife, the passing of time in nature, and sculptures taking shape and being set up by the help of a spirit. A movement forwards whilst looking backwards.”

A beautiful orchestration. This track builds its sublime intensity, delicately crafting this immersive atmosphere. Tending to the atmosphere, Anna Von Hausswolff brings in these key elements and sounds into this far-reaching track and helps the exploration move further and further into this complex depth. Haunting harmonies captivate the audience and send chills.

ll Thoughts Fly sees Anna von Hausswolff in solo instrumental mode, the entire record consisting of just one instrument – the pipe organ – representing absolute liberation of the imagination. Recorded with mobile equipment from Svenska Grammofonstudion in Örgryte New Church, in Gothenburg January 2020, All Thoughts Fly was produced and mixed by Anna von Hausswolff and Filip Leyman, who both handled the organ sound design. The album was mastered by Hans Olsson at Svenska Grammofonstudion and completed with photography by Gianluca Grasselli and layout/design by Tina Damgaard. Upon its release in September, All Thoughts Fly entered the Billboard Classical Crossover Chart at #5 and the Classical Sales Chart at #1. 

All Thoughts Fly is out now through Southern Lord on LP, CD and digitally via Bandcamp, and through all digital service providers.
