"Truly a fruitful collaboration between these artists, resulting in the biggest instrumental cohesion, an absolute sound control, and above all, a pure musical identification, reached after a conscientious study of textures, phrasing..."
--Diario Cordoba - Spain

"Virtuosity was in abundance on both guitars, asserting the influence and relevance of classical music. Barrueco and Platino tuned their strings and offered a program which included the Fantasia by Fernando Sor; Spanish Dance no. 11 Zambra, no. 2 Oriental, and no. 6 Jota by Granados; parts of Cantos de Espa᠍ by Albeniz, and Tango Suite by the Italian Piazzolla."
--ABC National Newpaper-Spain

"During the concert, both Barrueco and Platino gave a sample of their perfect technique, their pure style and their mutual understanding, which brought about a personal and musical symbiosis on a small stage, which, far from great pretenses, gave way to a warm and intimate atmosphere.
--La Cronica - Cordoba- Spain

"Both concert artists sparkled with elegance in the whole repertoire, especially in the interpretation of one of the great composers of the 19th century Spanish music Albeniz, Cantos de Espaᬠ in which the most internal corners and songs of Spain are evoked."
--La Cronica - Cordoba- Spain

"Like four hands on one imaginary gigantic guitar, they played as though they were one man. The seamless-ness of their musical unity was so complete that over long stretches it seemed almost academic."
--Trierisher Volksfreund - Luxembourg

"Franco Platino has been the revelation of the Convention... the recording in question is of very high musical and technical quality which allows us to foresee a future of great success for this young Italian artist. Platino has delighted the public with a solid, diamond-like performance of three Sonatas by Scarlatti"
-- Seicorde
