>>Mastroprimiano is the kind of musician who could convince you that a C-Major scale repeated 10 times is actually a pretty nice piece! He applies his nimble technique and his overflowing musicality to extract every ounce of emotion and excitement from even the silliest phrase. His touch is natural and engaging, and his dynamic range is such that it makes us understand what was so exciting about the fortepiano (Forte! Piano!) when it began to create its space among the instruments. Mastroprimiano truly dominates all the shades of tone the instrument can produce, and thus all the voices are always exposed with absolute clarity, I would even say didactically, if there was not a sniggering nuance implied in that word. So let me stress that there is nothing sedate or boring about Mastroprimiano’s playing, quite the contrary, it sings and dances with organic joie de vivre. Here is an interpreter who demonstrates complete empathy both with his chosen composer and his chosen instrument, which he shows in the best possible light.

>>Costantino Mastroprimiano - podobnie jak pianistka amerykańska - specjalizuje się w wykonaniach muzyki przełomu oświecenia i romantyzmu na instrumentach oryginalnych i ich kopiach. Ma nawet w swym dorobku publikację poświęconą Clementiemu, w jego muzyce zaś - Sonatach wydawanych lub wykonywanych przez kompozytora w Wiedniu - dostrzegł przede wszystkim ognisty temperament i szaleństwa bezpośrednio płynące ze źródła włosko-hiszpańskiego - Scarlattiego, z jawnym uwzględnieniem innego rodzaju ekstrawagancji: "szarpanej" formy i narracji przerywanej gwałtownym wirtuozowskim pasażem, spotykanej w kompozycjach Karola Filipa Emanuela Bacha. ..... ta propozycja dotarcia do głębi duszy twórcy nie mniej ważnego w swoich czasach niż pamiętani i wielbieni dziś trzej Wielcy, wydaje mi się bardziej przekonująca [Costantino Mastroprimiano - come la fortepianista americana- si specializza nella musica dello stesso periodo. Usa gli strumenti originali e le loro copie. Ha fatto una pubblicazione dedicata a Clementi. Nella sua musica (sonate edite e eseguite a Vienna) ha visto temperamento di fuoco e di pazzia che arrivano dalle radici italo-espaniche: Scarlatti, con chiara considerazione dell’ altro concetto di stravaganza: forma 'lacerata' e narrazione interrotta da impetuosi passaggi, che troviamo spesso da C.P.E. Bach. .... La proposta di Mastroprimiano di entrare nella anima di Clementi - non meno importante dei Tre Grandi Viennesi- mi convince di piů.]

>>... Il solista Costantino Mastroprimiano in questi 3 cd opta per l'impiego del fortepiano, č sciolto e analitico .... Gustoso
