CD Review: Patrick Appello Finds Romance With His Guitar
The album covers classical songs by Franz Schubert, Johann Kasper Mertz and Mauro Giuliani. Apello’s performance on the opening piece “Opern-Review ‘Lucia di Lammermoor (after Donizetti)” is just a wonderful musical piece that sets the stage for the rest of this album. The intricacy of his performance of “The Last Rose Of Summer” is so heartfelt with only a classical guitar to portray the feelings that Appello seems to pull this off with ease. His delivery of the four pieces of music from the “Giuilianiate” places you back to a simpler time when one instrument was all that was needed to entertain.
