Notes and Editorial Reviews

Reminiscence is an innovative and exciting project about the songs of John Dowland, performed on the twelve-string guitar by Marco Poeta and the warm and intense voice of Alessandra Losacco. Italian guitarist Marco Poeta is the only non-Portuguese musician to be recognized and considered a true faddist from the Portuguese. He is a talented player, although he has never learned how to read music. When he was eighteen he discovered the Brazilian bossa nova, a genre that he studied for two decades, leading him to work with the greatest musicians and singers of the genre. “Marco Poeta reinvents with twelve strings with amazing creative intuition ... Only a particularly sensitive and non-conformist musician could hunger for a new lute that Read more unfurls an unpredictable timbric and harmonic richness both in Dowland's original interpretations and in the poet's compositions in the style of Great composer-instrumentalist Elizabeth ... A pearl that can not be missed in a musical collection worthy of this name.” (Moni Ovadia) Read less
