Quotes

They move with almost dowsing coordinates: as François Papirer writes in the notes, improvised music that seems written
Il Manifesto

Cultured, curious, multitasking – under the banner of a freedom that does not, however, disregard strictness. The magic of music without labels
Musica Jazz

A multiplicity of twentieth-century influences ranging from the harmonious peasant modalism of the Hungarian Béla Bartók to the production of the American Conlon Nancarrow
La Repubblica

Expressive heights and beautifully longing, timeless melancholia which evokes memories of what used to be Chamber Music in eras long gone
Baze Djunkiii

Special effects are avoided and intimate atmospheres are privileged, on the ridge between sound and silence
Corriere di Brescia

A live recording that unfolds with fluency and variety of scripts according to a dialogue dense and tight that does not include empty exhibitionisms
Blow Up

Music that avoids idiomatic recognitions and bets on extemporaneous creation and continuous dialogue
Eco di Bergamo
