The Mediterranean guitar poet
In his homeland, Italy, Franco Morone has long established himself as one of the most important representatives of fingerstyle guitar playing. He is not only a musician with a sensitive tonal vocabulary and a solid knowledge of the craft, but has also made himself a name as a teacher and author of educational books on fingerstyle technique. So what happens when the Mediterranean lightheartedness of this guitarist from Bologna encounters the musical whimsicality of Irish jigs, reels and hornpipes? The result is music of circumspect virtuosity, music that wafts about our ears like a warm yet always surprising breeze. Franco Morone‘s own compositions exude a light and airy mood. They take us up on a gentle flight, carried by the broad imagination of this humorous Italian musician, whose music can really make our fantasy resound. Every note must sound like a pebble falling into the water.
