Notes & Reviews:

Conceived as an attempt to depict the "autumn" of the human soul, guitarist Lorenzo Micheli's newest recording collects some of the most beautiful pages written for the guitar in the 20th c. + A sense of gloomy melancholy surfaces throughout the program, from Castelnuovo-Tedesco's "Platero y yo" to Tansman's "Hommage a` Chopin", from Asencio's "Suite Mistica" to Gilardino's "Canzone notturna". + Each composer has a story to tell, often his own story: restlessness, nostalgia, grief, loneliness, and the longing for another place and another time pervade all the pieces of the CD.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Lorenzo Micheli's playing is simply gorgeous - he is a superb musician, a fearless virtuoso, and a moving interpreter, and his notes are a model for a serious recording. This is guitar at its finest.
