La Coscienza di Zeno (CDZ) is a modern Italian progressive band that formed in Genoa in 2007. CDZ is named after a well-known Italian novel, the title of which translates into English as ''Zeno's conscience''. The book is largely concerned with the paradoxes of human behaviour and is considered to be the first psychoanalytic novel. The band initially played a modern style of progressive music that was influenced by the giants of UK prog rock. Released in May 2011, the self-titled album is a broadly symphonic work although it is punctuated by that familiar Italian eclectic spirit. The obligatory complex structures contain some surprising twists and feature lush, fulsome arrangements. According to the band's official site the album grows with repeated listens, "gradually revealing the rewarding complexity of its construction.
La Coscienza di Zeno is one of those rare albums that, while in keeping with the classic prog tradition of long tracks, rich instrumentation (with special prominence given to the keyboards) and intricate arrangements, achieves the considerable feat of never overstaying its welcome. Clocking in at slightly under one hour, La Coscienza di Zeno features seven tracks between 6 and 13 minutes. Though the main foundation of the album is symphonic, lush and multilayered, with plenty of seamless instrumental interplay, outstanding solo passages and rivetingly expressive singing, there is also enough variety to keep the interest of the more eclectic-minded listeners, with a wide range of influences cropping up almost unexpectedly, from waltz to folk by way of jazz and even hard rock.
On this occasion La Coscienza di Zeno gets rid of the classical elements (flutes, string instruments) and presents itself in a five-piece formation (Alessio Calandriello - voice, Gabriele Guidi Colombi - bass, Andrea Orlando - drums, Davide Serpico - Electric guitar; Luca Scherani - piano, keyboards) under the direction of Maestro and lyricist Stefano Agnini.
