“Strong Guitar Emotions” is first and foremost a journey to the most fascinating places in the contemporary guitar repertoireo…. In this context, simplicity of language becomes direct emotion, in a panorama that includes Latin components (Paulo Bellinati, Jorge Morel, Antonio Carlos Jobim and Astor Piazzolla), an “Italian” line that interweaves cantabile and Mediterranean roots (Maurizio Colonna, Giorgio Signorile), post-Baroque references (Paolo Ugoletti), oriental and extra-European sounds (Carlo Domeniconi, Nikola Starcevic), a search for new paths (Raffaele Cacciola), pop-folk references (Andrew York, Roberto Fabbri), jazz atmospheres (Ralph Towner) and movie soundtracks (Stanley Myers) [from Giulio Tampalini’s introductory notes].
In short, in this CD an attempt has been made to collect some of those encores (of contemporary music often contaminated or even beyond the strict boundary of strictly classical music), which once heard, one would like to know, and then listen to again.
