Press & Artists Quotes

It has been a great learning experience for me to see how Peppino plays in front of an audience. He’s very endearing to them because of the conviction and the genuineness in his musicality. They immediately warm up to him, so what happens is a real appreciation of each musical moment. It’s more meaningful, more heartwarming. I’ve seen it night after night.

Peppino D’agostino is one of the best picking style guitarists that I’ve ever met..His technique is very personal and rich and takes up elements of Classical guitar in order to integrate them into his musical language.

I have presented guitarist/composer Peppino D’Agostino in concert here in Rhode Island about ten times over the past 25 years and he is one of the most engaging and talented artists I’ve seen. Each concert stands out for it’s uniqueness and versatility. His musicality and charm is evident in all of his original compositions which are some of the finest among contemporary guitar composers. Both his arrangements and originals represent an eclectic blend of musical styles and influences from around the world that always entertain and enlighten his audiences.

D’Agostino plays steel-string guitar with virtuosity and complexity…Influences are as far-flung as the flamenco work of Paco de Lucia and the pop sensibility of the Beatles, evident in the songs he’s written, which brim with memorable melodies.

Once again Peppino’s music and stories from the stage captivated our audience and his music continues to resonate inside this old Opera House weeks later. It’s always an honor to have a musician of Peppino’s talent in the house, but the way he engages the audience makes him unforgettable. We look forward to his return.
