Il Silenzio is an Italian pop music instrumental piece, with a small part of spoken Italian lyrics, notable for its trumpet theme. It was written in 1965 by trumpet player Nini Rosso and Guglielmo Brezza, its thematic melody being an extension of the bugle military call for taps. It has become a worldwide instrumental standard, which has sold around 10 million copies. It was a number one hit in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Italy and in Switzerland in 1965. It reached the position of Number 1 in Australia on 01/09/65 and stayed in the charts for 19 weeks. In the United States it reached #32 in the Billboard Easy Listening Charts. Read on...
