Antonio Forcione: Solo Guitar
From the moment.that Antonio walks on stage to rapturous applause, a humble smile on his face, guitar in hand, you know you are in the presence of a true artist and are in for an evening with a touch of magic. And as the first deep, warm, intense notes float through the auditorium, you can hear a pin drop and feel the sonic spell of his guitar weaving through the room.
Antonio’s impressive twenty-one albums and extensive international tours in festivals and theatres – both as a solo artist, in duo and with his acoustic quartet – have brought high critical acclaim from as far as Australia and Hong Kong to the Carribean, Russia and all over Europe.
“Imagine an Italian hybrid of Michael Hedges, John McLaughlin and Django Reinhardt . . . ferocious, rampaging, controlled power, meticulous precision and clarity of expression . . . astonishing musical personality.”
“. . . . his guitar never fails to mesmerise. He can make it sing or weep.” – Review of a live gig at Ronnie Scott’s
