Notes & Reviews:

Cello virtuosity reigns on Capriccioso, the new album by GrammyR-nominated Antonio Meneses, one of today's most esteemed cellists. He harks back to his predecessors, a quartet of European cellists who composed dazzling works for their own instrument. At the heart of the album are 12 Caprices by 19th-century Italian cellist Carlo Alfredo Piatti, as well as his Caprice on a Theme from Pacini's "Niobe." Antonio adds David Popper's Etude No. 29, and bookends the album with etudes by the French brothers Jean-Louis and Jean-Pierre Duport.

Gramophone
Commanding Brazilian virtuoso Antonio Meneses surmounts every hurdle with ease.

American Record Guide, September/October 2015
Of all the Piatti recordings, I think this one does the most for the music. Seriously, you won't go wrong with this one. Musical expression is his object and he achieves it.
