"From 1 to 8" is a collection of eight beautiful new compositions for contemporary acoustic guitar. Or - depending on who's listening - it's a collection of eight study etudes for guitarists, focusing on composition, deep musicality and intricate technique.
From the Study Notes, Pino writes: “I think that the best technique is built on the understanding of the musical thought, rather than on the perfect articulation of the fingers. Technical skills can never be separated from the music itself, because the deeper you delve into the composition, the more you will desire to possess the proper technique to express it. Music and technique live together; they feed each other.”
From a review of Pino's previous cd “Why Not?” - This album is highly recommended for all fans of contemporary instrumental music and for guitarists wanting to hear the potential of the acoustic instrument played at the highest level imaginable.James Scott, Minor 7th
