"...a sensitively played lute..."

DER STANDARD, W.Fuhrmann


"L.C. is a poetical, concentrated, soft and precise player with a clear notion on interpretation and a remarkable sense of tone... a brilliant technique".

L'ARENA DI VERONA, C.Bo, D.P.


"...L.C. played realy virtuosically...He allowed the complete range of palying that is possible to come out..."

SÜDDEUTSCHE ZEITUNG, H.Z.


"The outstanding lutenist L.C. plays with a virtuosic technique and selected musicality. The effect is enchanting."

PIANO TIME, B.Re


"...L.C. displays to the listener a musical world full of coulor and imagination. His playing sounds unbelievably precise and clean...dinamyc and full of fantasy and intelligent...clear and yet effectively phrased."

FONO FORUM, S.Benda


"...From the very first note on one falls under the charming spell of a soft but decisive playing, which is, in an intelligent way, a critical look at contrapuntal structures and virtuosic passages...a wonderful recording".

REPERTOIRE, M.Laizé


"...Vitality and his exeptional taste are charateristic for L.C.'s interpretation. His especially clear and aristocratical phrasing allows the voices to be heard even in the polyphonical context of the Toccata. In his fine differentiatin of melodic line; C.'s playing bestows a transparence and infectious flourish...The fugal passages are mastered with great virtuosity...a first class soloist."

DIAPASON, J.Bernard


"....in order to complete the rediscovery of Piccinini, the recording from L.C. would be the one most recommended..."

REPERTOIRE, E. Sebbag


"L.C. amazes us with the transparence of his interpretation. The poliphony is of incredible clarity, the execution of the toccatas is spellbinding. Piccinini's music can be heard in its entir freshness and makes us yearn for more."

TABLATURE, A.Dall'Osso
