Album Notes
Interpreting someone’s music isn’t just a matter of making a literal performance of the exact notes they wrote and adding your feeling to it: at least this is not the only way. Above all, what really counts is to succeed in evoking the soul of the composer. But how?

A musician may work directly on the music and even, sacrilegious as it may sound, rewrite it and turn it into a real encounter between the player and the composer. What needs to be pursued is the capability of catching the spirit of a creator: to be his resonance rather than his replicant.

Pierluigi Potalivo


“..'Spirito di una Sonata' is a musical dialectic; a Socratic debate where illumination is achieved”.

Review by Wildy Haskell

“..’Spirito di una Sonata’ is an enjoyable and masterfully performed album (..) Potalivo takes a risk with his interpretations (..) and manages to succeed on every level".

Review by Matt Warnock, Executive Director of the WIU Guitar Festival

"Italian classical guitarist Pierluigi Potalivo has taken his proficiency with his instrument to a new and exciting realm that many instrumentalists never encounter (..) by tackling these immensely creative ideas and performing them with gusto”.
