In the last half of 2011 Lago – due to other obligations (concerts, teaching, arranging) – did not compose a single piece. In the beginning of 2012 he finally found some time to compose and was inspired by his friend André Heuvelman. André had asked him to write something ‘simple and beautiful’ and out came Las Noches De Verano I. André in turn was so inspired by this piece that he decided to record a solo CD.
Lago decided to make a series of ‘Noches de Verano’; inspired by his many musicians friends. The pieces are almost Dadaist in their material and handling thereof. The ‘Noches’ try to catch the beauty of summer nights: instantaneous moments of complete happiness followed by the nostalgic awareness of the fragility of life, comforted nevertheless by the warmth of a summer night.
