“…the Calabrian guitarist demonstrates an extremely qualified mastership leading to virtuosismo, typical of this interpretation of the 19th. century” Guitart

“…in the studies of Gilardino the technical exuberance of the Calabrian musician takes pride of place and gives back to the text its expressive strength/force…”
