Kenneth Keaton
American Record Guide, July 2017

The Tortorellis are excellent advocates for this music. …Balance is perfect—Mauro has an exceptionally sweet sound that pairs beautifully with Luciano’s. Phrasing is always expressive, never eccentric, though I often smiled at unexpected beauties they created. © 2017 American Record Guide

Pizzicato, May 2017

Francesco Molino’s sonatas clearly boost the role of the guitar from an accompanying into a concert instrument. The first recording of these pieces give the listener the chance to discover delightful, graceful and spirited music. The Tortorelli brothers prove dedicated and skilled performers of this music. © 2017 Pizzicato

Records International, March 2017

Molino has been in Carulli’s shadow both throughout his lifetime and in the record catalogues. These sonatas, four of the six in Allegro-Romanza-Rondo form (the other two omit the Romanza and full of attractive melodies, date from 1812 and 1813 and have all the charm of Carulli but less of the self-conscious display. © 2017 Records International
