"Daniel, to say that your performance with Francesca was the highlight of our Evening Classical Guitar Concert Series would be an understatement. From your first piece to the last the audience was captivated and enthralled. Your incredible musicality and subtle shaping of melody and harmony weaved a performance not to be forgotten anytime soon." — Robert Mathews, producer, Yuba College Evening Classical Guitar Concert Series. June 2013
“Daniel: I loved your performance... You are so calm and you have a wonderful way of connecting with your audience, and your music is amazing. I listened to your beautiful CD on the way home... I loved it, Daniel. You are truly an artist....thank you for sharing your projects with me! Your playing goes way beyond the technical realm, and into the soul.” — Catherine Altamura, Santa Rosa
"Please extend my appreciation to Francesca for today's smooth, golden-toned flute music. You are an excellent musical ensemble and I will recommend you whenever I can." — Brad Slocum [Westminster Presbyterian Church Music At Noon Director] Jan. 2013
What a wonderful evening. Both you and Francesca were a hit with everyone. Some of the comments I received were: "The evening went too fast. I was mesmerized by the music." "This is what we moved here for. The music along with the education was brilliant."
You raised the bar very high for the next performance. I can't thank you enough for creating a program that I had only envisioned. I will pass you name along to a few other associations that I know of. I will look into all three of your recommendations.
Again, thank you and Francesca for giving us such a soulful evening. — Richard Garcia, Club Los Maganos, Brentwood , CA. Jan 2013
