They utterly transform great Impressionist masterpieces—and prove with passion that the torch lit by Debussy and Ravel burns brightly among living guitar composers. They buck today’s trendiness, playing with unabashed, Segovia-like emotion; their tempos are dramatic and accented, not metronomic; their guitar sound has a gorgeous range of timbres and colors, never hardened by the pressure to play loud for large concert halls.

Gramophone says of Carlo, “...a refreshing change.” Master guitarist Christopher Parkeningpraises Aaron: “He misses nothing.”

REVIEW by Audiophile Audition

It means "the birth or creation of two out of one" "Diplogenesis" - SATIE: Gymnopedie Nos. 1, 2 & 3; FALLA: Chanson du Feu Follet;Recit du Pecheur; PEDREIRA: Diversion No. 2; CHENEVERT: Chanson des enfants; CLEMENT-FOREMAN: Les Andelys; CORDERO: Concionfrom Das Piezos Cortas; LEON: Suite for Two Guitars - Carlo Pezzimenti & Aaron Cotton, acoustic guitars - Mapleshade Classical 11682, 45:30 ****: These two excellent classical guitarists have been playing together for some time - Carlo has been Aaron's mentor since the latter was age ten. They came across the music to Ernesto Garcia de León's Suite for Two Guitars and wanted to play it just for the heck of it. That went so well they got into other two-guitar works and arranged others, and soon Dilogenesis was born. The name means the birth or creation of two out of one. Their program opens with the luscious Gymnopedies of Satie, then two transcriptions taken from Falla's ballet Love The Magician. The rest of the program delves into enjoyable but probably unfamiliar works by various Spanish and French composers. The four-movement suite for two guitars is the major piece here, and rather than emphasizing the two instrumental voices it achieves the impression of a single complex guitar being played. Mapleshade's purist recording approach (minimal miking, analog tape deck, highest-quality A-D processor) results in an astonishingly natural presence of the two guitarists in your listening room. Even the note booklet texts are higher resolution - a large size font has been used for easy readability. -John Sunier
