 Giuliani Guitar Concertos  August 29, 2012 By J. Poet (MISSION BEACH, CA) See All My Reviews "I play the stereo at night -- very low -- because I have noisy neighbors and this allows me to sleep. After 15 minutes into this selection, I turned the volume up considerably -- I wanted to hear the title of the selection. It was not a familiar artist, at all. I left the bed at 2am to boot the computer, track the selection, and buy the CD. It is enchanting." Report Abuse
