È raro oggi trovare un chitarrista con tanta musicalità, espressività e bel suono come quello di Andrea: lo considero una promessa sicura per il concertismo internazionale e un vanto della cultura musicale italiana.
Bruno Battisti D’Amario
your playing will go very far!
Andrea vive con grande serietà la musica: per lui essa è espressione del profondo, e lo si intuisce osservandolo suonare; l'attenzione per il suono, l'amore con cui canta ogni frase e, non ultima, la limpidezza tecnica, colpiscono sempre chi lo ascolta.
Andrea è uno dei pochi musicisti che abbia saputo fare tesoro delle sue differenti esperienze musicali. Il suo eclettismo é davvero straordinario e l'equilibrio che raggiunge nelle sue esecuzioni davvero ammirevole
Andrea Recinelli has a deep sense for poetry and profound concentration - one is mesmerized by the richness and beauty of his playing
