De Meglio 1826 - Antonio Piricone

 [Andreas Staier]

“Today one hears so many streamlined performances of classical music, designed for easy consumption, unobtrusive use in hotel lobbies, relaxing the listeners rather than awakening their concentration and curiosity. For me, it is always a joy when I find in this ocean of pleasant superficiality a genuine, sincere musician. Antonio Piricone is one of these. I have accompanied his musical paths for some years now. He has a keen sensibility for the rhetorical structure of music, he makes it sing, dance, argue. He is a real artist.”
