Notes & Reviews:

Angelo Gilardino's unique blend of folk and contemporary earned him a spot among the most important guitar composers of the last fifty years. His works are marked by a Mediterranean glow and a feeling of a love for life. This new release shows the composer's affinity for Sicily. Especially notable are the first three tracks, which are receiving here their world premiere recording. Gilardino wrote his own illuminating liner notes for this album. His previous recordings have been heralded as "... surreal in nature and open in texture... This is a treat for adventurous pursuers of the guitar concerto on the look-out for refreshing and distinctive contemporary additions to the repertoire." (MusicWeb)

Gramophone Magazine, December 2016
Performances are excellent throughout, with Marchese and his collaborators mining Gilardino's witty, lyrical and contemplative seams alike with gusto and sympathy.
