Notes and Editorial Reviews

Giovanni Caruso's Guitarmosaics is a collection of related, newly-composed works for guitar, inspired by a pair of pieces entitled Nostalgia and Ricordi passati, composed by Caruso in 2009. Written to conjure up a dense sound and Mediterranean feeling, Caruso incorporated multi-track guitar into these recordings, and this became the basis of the collection, inspiring Caruso's subsequent compositions.

Influences that range from Marin Marais, rock music, the Sicilian countryside, and the dark emotions inspired by the death of Italian soldiers in Afghanistan combine to make these 12 pieces a colourful, virtuosic and deeply personal new work.
