When Stradivarius proposed that I myself present the discographic project that they had finished recording I immediately accepted with great enthusiasm. I must say that this task for me is easy in some ways, since a CD for harmonica and orchestra has the advantage of being something extremely rare. In addition, the repertory here proposed enables me to illustrate the possibilities of the instrument in sound, in a broad and varied way. In fact, this recording includes three original compositions written for Harmonica and Orchestra and two transcriptions that I myself have arranged. These transcriptions, although they were not originally for the Harmonica, further contribute to emphasising the timbric characteristics of this instrument. When one listens to 'Oblivion' by Piazzolla one can clearly hear the timbric similarity to the bandoneón, the instrument that Piazzolla composed and performed on. In fact the two instruments belong to the same family, that of the free reeds..." - Gianluca Littera (in the liner notes)
