il Fronimo n. 187 (luglio 2019)
‘Catarsis’ è un lavoro ricco di situazioni contrastanti e con momenti talora aggressivi, ma perfettamente funzionali alle intenzioni espressive dell’autore. ... l’esecuzione di questo brano è tecnicamente molto complessa e, come tale, destinata ad esecutori esperti. (Antonio Borrelli)
