Marcos Vinicius, guitarist and composer

Vinicius redefines the rules of any musical genre”

Dean L.Farley, USA

 

“Capable of rare perfection”

Targstung Journal, Austria

 

 “…more than his virtuosity Vinicius offers to our listening  sounds hidden among the cords of this wonderful instrument.”

Riccardo Chailly, Director of the Royal Concertgbouw, Amsterdam

 

“…an utmost sensitivity and a very great level technique.”

Jorg Sumemmeier, President of International Guitar Association, Germany

 

“…A very pure artist, bright and warm..”

Oscar Ghiglia, Accademia Chigiana of Siena, Italy

 

“…there is a short part of his path where Vinicius not only passes through the music of other people, but inside himself. Everything is poetic, noble, in his eloquent phrasing, in his tone-colour fantasy…”

“With his new CD “Viola Violar” Vinicius might move Pfilzner of Hindemith too:  you can imagine what about us!  In his album there is a tone-colour so warm and fascinating  to inflame and exalte our feeling.”

Gian Mario Benzing, Corriere della Sera, Italy

 

“  this artist mainly strikes us by his phrasing limpidity and  sound quality, which is not an easy aim on six cords. The beauty of his “touch” creates atmosphere, colour, warmth, romance, and his music goes straight to your heart.”

Pino Pignata, Famiglia Cristiana, Italy

 

“the brazilian Marcos Vinicius, the most famous virtuoso soloist of the new international generation of guitar players,  presents in “Dedicatoria”, gently and with art and pleasure, eighteen works which, ideally following the thread of life, bind  pieces from Paetorius to Sanz, from Borges to Rodrigo, from Brouwer to Granados.”

Direct Rriflections, Revista del Bose Club

 

“…european refined tastes, an english lord appeal, which could take in by appearances: during his performance, he is taken by an enchantment, showing  his brazilian sensitivity, like  a full-sounding canvas that fascinates the listeners, which  hardly may resurface to reality.”

Fabio Germinaro, Musibrasil

 

“…Marcos Vinicius, a guitar virtuoso that looks like Liszt”

L’Eco di Bergamo, Italy

 

“ …a unique power in his hands: through the Music, being  carried  away into a dream, leaving behind the world that surrounds us.”

Giornale dell’Alto Milanese

 

“…he shows a  very rich and enchanting tone-colour peculiarity. Anything he plays is moved by his personal fresh and charming sound, showing a  deep care to create the particular nuance of his so eloquent phrasing, because, first of all, Vinicius  seems to be a passionate ballader.”

Corriere della Sera (ViviMilano, Classical Records)

 

…it is quite impossible to find any  arrogance or the caprices of a prima donna, but the  modesty of who is playing with Love, with Enjoyment and with Respect, in the aim of entering into an inviolable friendship with the silence.”

Davide Ielmini, La Prealpina

 

“…through his consummate technique, Marcos uses the music as a  language to establish relationships, in a merge with his instrument, by cancelling  the feeling  of  invisible limit that often raises between the performer and the listener.”

Marco Cinque, Il Manifesto

  

“…he can convey the amazing musicality of brazilian composers by his  rhythmic scansion, his  phrasing, the brightness of the language of his guitar, his ability to communicate with the great music: he is a unique gift to the humanity.”

Alessandro Colombo
