" Very dynamically played.
His playing is quite musical and
technically really adept.
I was really impressed.
I had a good time
listening to him."

- David Tanenbaum
Guitar Department Chair
San Francisco Conservatory of Music

" ...played with
assured phrasing,
responsive dynamics, and
an emotive pallette
ranging from
minikin delicacy
to volcanic fury. "

- Ellis, American Record Guide
on Florante's recording of
New Music For Four Guitars

"He can deliver notes
to the most virtuosic pieces
with ease and comfort all while
making a very musical statement .
He is among the very best !"

San Francisco Conservatory of Music
