Notes & Reviews:

From the liner notes by Gianluca Littera: "When Stradivarius proposed that I present the discographic project that they had finished recording I immediately accepted with great enthusiasm. I must say that this task for me is easy in some ways, since a CD for harmonica and orchestra has the advantage of being something extremely rare. In addition, the repertory here proposed enables me to illustrate the possibilities of the instrument in sound, in a broad and varied way."

Notes & Reviews:
