Kenneth Keaton
American Record Guide, July 2012

The bulk of the music comes from Castelnuovo’s interest in past musical styles. The lyricVariations Through the Centuries starts with a chaconne, then a prelude, and then a pair of waltzes and a foxtrot…it all hangs together, a tribute to his natural lyricism in whatever context.

…Renato Samuelli…is…a fine player, with a solid technique and an excellent feel for this music. He has a natural, unforced rubato, and a nice sense of color. I’m glad to have this recording. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog, April 2012

The 16 examples from [Castelnuovo-Tedesco] “Notes from Notebook I,II” show how student pieces of moderate difficulty can also have the charm of the colloquial and a place in the classical guitar tradition.

The “Tonadilla” and the “Capriccio Diabolico”, on the other hand, give you the fully fleshed-out composer of brilliance, the gifted professional writing for the guitar master.

Samuelli handles the very different works adroitly, with subtle touch and judicious expression…it is a program that encompasses the full spectrum of the composer's oeuvre, nicely played. © 2012 Gapplegate Guitar and Bass Blog Read complete review
