Ricordi published his three‐volume method which gathers up the fruits of decades of experience as a performer and teacher. The last part is dedicated to this set of 22 Studies. Gangi devoted special attention to techniques pertaining to the left hand: fixed and barre chords, polyphony, scales and legato. In addition he developed exercises for perfecting advanced arpeggios, repeated notes and melodic thumb position.
However, even the most casual attention paid to the album, and to Andrea Pace’s sensitive performance, will reveal to the listener that these studies are so much more than technical exercises, but fine, free‐standing pieces in their own right. Admitting the influence of jazz and the Latin‐American world of Astor Piazzolla and Villa‐Lobos, they are unfailingly tuneful, readily capturing a mood whether snappy (the Seventh in particular) or often surprisingly rhapsodic: in this regard the first study sets the tone for the set as a whole. ‘Small masterpieces,’ Pace calls them in his booklet note, ‘small works of art in their own right, pieces that can hold their own in concert halls’; they will find an appeal way beyond the specialised guitar market.
