MAURO GIULIANI

LE ROSSINIANE

In a sense, this is a difficult review to write. How can I avoid repetitions of superlatives or constant reference to a thesaurus? So let’s do this: think of anything you could use to describe a performance – musicianship, musicality, technical brilliance – the list could go on. Now believe me when I tell you the Goran Krivokapić’s rendition of the six Giuliani Rossiniane is at the very highest level in anything you can imagine. This is superlative playing of such power and imagination that it elevates the works far above what can descend to mere pastiches. This is some of the finest playing I have ever heard, and the best recording of Giuliani’s music since Pepe Romero’s discs of solos and concerted works decades ago. Graham Wade’s exemplary notes include references to all of the Rossini operas which are quoted in the pieces. The recording exemplifies Norbert Kraft’s work in its customary excellence.

J. S. BACH

ENGLISH SUITES Nos. 4-6*

Critics’ Choice Top 10
Naxos

“There is a convincing French-styled swing of rhythms in the allemandes and courantes. Harpsichordists and pianists could envy the level of involvement on display here.”
– American Record Guide

J. S. BACH

ENGLISH SUITES Nos. 1-3*

Critics’ Choice Top 10
Naxos

“It is a great idea, carried off to perfection in this superb disc. To put it another way, this is brilliant musicianship and playing of some of Bach’s most enjoyable suites of dances.”
– Soundboard Magazine

SONATE

“[…] This sonata by Haydn […] is presented by Krivokapic with a precision and a passion for detail, equal to that of an Andras Schiff ..”
– Il Fronimo

CHAMBER MUSIC FOR GUITAR AND PIANO

CD of the Week
Fine Music Radio, South Africa

“When two true virtuosos such as the fantastic guitarist Goran Krivokapic and the equally brilliant pianist Corneli Smit conspire and enter this fallow field together, the expert is all ears. Smit and Krivokapić are certainly the right ones to make this genre popular again. This excellent CD provides the evidence.”
– Akustik Gitarre magazine, Germany

MONTENEGRIN GUITAR DUO

GORAN KRIVOKAPIĆ & DANIJEL CEROVIĆ

“The Krivokapić and Cerović guitar duo (Montenegrin Guitar Duo) is an exceptional guitar ensemble. These outstanding artists play my Sonata Fantasia with a deep understanding of the text and have impeccably captured the spirit of my music with a great sense of drama and temperament. I am sure other composers would be thrilled and honored to have such a brilliant representation of their work. Bravo!”

– Dušan Bogdanović – composer

SOR

Guitar’s TOP 100
by Enrique Robichaud

“This recording […] can compete with any Sor disc on the market, with technically unimpeachable playing and a program that perhaps resembles one Sor himself might have chosen.”

GUITAR RECITAL

Golden Guitar Award
for best cd of the year 2005

“If you can listen without at least wanting to move to the beat, you probably don’t have the volume right. Technique throughout is superb. The artist knows his music!”

SPANISH GUITAR MASTERPIECES

“There is a goodly helping of music by Isaac Albéniz, Francisco Tárrega and Gaspar Sanz, with a fleeting visit from Joaquín Rodrigo and Manuel de Falla, the seventeen tracks taken from Naxos’s enormous catalogue of guitar discs. An abundance of atmospheric Spanish strumming, with many famous melodies to form that pleasing backdrop, the disc featuring a long list of performers including famous names, such as Norbert Kraft, and major guitar competition winners over many years.”
