Biographical Notes

Born in Torino in 1967, Alfredo Franco experiences several non-classical musical contexts in his youth before studying classical guitar; he subsequently deepens his musical competences in the historical and critical fields at the Dams faculty of the Universtiy of Turin (Department for Art, Music and Theatre). The choice to abandon the concert activity leads to the decision to study composition, which has been his primary commitment in the recent years and gets concrete in the writing of a series of guitar works performed and recorded by valuable interpreters (Cristiano Porqueddu, Alberto Mesirca, Duo Giulio Tampalini and Joanna Klisowska, Marcello Rivelli, Ermanno Brignolo, Leonardo de Marchi, Sergio Sorrentino, Duo Giri, Duo Scarlatti, Giacomo Palazzesi) and released on CD (Cahier des chansons anciennes nn. 1 e 2, Marcello Rivelli, Ermanno Brignolo – dotguitar; Music from a parallel world vol. 4, Sergio Sorrentino - Map).

Reviews

Classical Guitar Magazine (Winter 2015)
... In the guitar-duet piece, the use of unusual rhythms in conjunction with one another is immediately apparent. The time signatures are in constant flux and ... is rarely where you might expect it to be on the guitars, although with time it is all quite playable. However, the difficulty factor for both guitarists is considerably higher than in the guitar-and-voice piece, with the same uncommon use of harmonies. Though, again, it is essentially a tonal piece throughout its 150 or so bars. Both works are difficult to like at first, as the idiom is hard to come to grips with, but in due time the beauty of the writing emerges, and as such I can recommend them both as works interested players/singers should get to know. (C. Dumigan)

Seicorde (aprile-giugno 2015)
... Molto coerente nella sua struttura, sempre attenta agli intervalli scelti, si tratta di un bel brano da concerto per il duo di chitarre. Il livello di difficoltà richiesta non è esasperato. (F. Cavallone)
