Notes & Reviews:

The duo has achieved enormous success in international competitions and has collaborated with composers such as Paolo Baioni, Stefano Trevisi and Dimitri Nicolau. Joining the duo on this recording is the Atem Saxophone Quartet, which has received critical acclaim for its performances at numerous chamber music and jazz festivals.

American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Brutti plays with great sincerity and a wonderfully controlled vibrato. Farinelli offers nice touch and pedal work at the keyboard, even if he could sometimes have more presence in the texture. Brutti's colleagues in the Atem Saxophone Quartet are excellent collaborators on the 24 Duos, always matching the phrasing of the host and ensuring impeccable intonation on Koechlin's perfect intervals and unisons.

MusicWeb International, 3rd July 2013
All of the late-period pieces heard here are immensely melodic and idiomatic, uncomplicated on the surface yet expressive of a considered intelligence...star of the show on these three discs is saxophonist David Brutti...tonal colourings are lustrous and luxurious, his phrasing natural and gratifying.
