How should we classify a musician with the authentic capacity to compose inspired symphonies, concerts for violin, piano, cello, accordion, harmonica and so many other instruments; popular waltzes and choros and still, he sits at the piano and beautifully plays his music, as well as the other’s? A man is recognized for its style, says Buffon. If that is to be acclaimed as a truthful statement, the maestro has created his own and all those who are capable of such achievement should be honored to perform the Radamés Gnattali’s style!

Alceo Bocchino (1918-2013) (Heading Maestro of the Orquestra Sinfônica do Paraná, pianist and composer)

From the CD Três concertos e uma Brasiliana, by Radamés Gnattali, registered by Rádio MEC/SOARMEC, 1997.
