"Atlantide Sommersa" is a beautiful presentation of music "New Age" for piano, instrumental album of the Italian musician Roberto Santucci.

It is also clear that Roberto Santucci is one of the best pianists of its kind, and each of these ten tracks is solid, seamless and timeless. Atlandide Sommersa is well produced, and all the work for piano by Roberto Santucci sounds clean and professional. White Golden Dreams presents the album beautifully with a lulling piano progression rather vague on the high end. Anthynea is a music inspired by the Queen of the sunken city with a lighter sound, and plan work wise and emotional that uses the entire floor, seemingly all at once. The whole album is great, with a nice quality, lulling perfect for relaxation, it is the superb work of the piano inspired by one of the best artists in the industry.
