"“I have known Francesco for some years and have seen his development from a talented guitar student to a young professional musician. This Spring I was very happy to hear him play a concerto with orchestra and he showed security and confidence in his playing, as well as technical excellence. All of this made it a first class performance and proved that he has a bright future in his guitar playing career.”"

David Russell - classical guitarist and 2005 Grammy Award winner

"“The young guitarist Francesco has completed his course of study in a brilliant and diversified way, and therefore has a serious and deep preparation. In listening to him, however, you get the feeling that the academic acquisitions have not changed his way of making music, which is distinguished by his spontaneity and his communicative verve: he was born to donate the gift of music to the audience.”"

Angelo Gilardino - classical guitarist, composer and musicologist
