Press reviews

“While the audience at Bourgie Hall was going wild after Guarrera’s performance of Liszt’s Rhapsody Espagnole… we were still trying to recover from the beauty of Beethoven’s Op. 10 No. 3, which opened it. Guarrera resisted the temptation to place his own stamp on the work, instead using a crisp touch and careful attention to detail to simply reveal the beauty in Beethoven’s score. ”

Robert Rowat - Producer at CBC/Radio-Canada / Montreal Competition / May 2017

“As soon as he started playing, I was conquered… the Italian Giuseppe Guarrera was in my favorites from the beginning.”

Caroline Rodgers - Ludwig-van.com / Montreal Competition / May 2017
