Emanuele Dalamso is now a Légère Endorsing Artist, here you can find his opinion on their products:
“The first time I tried Légère reeds I found that the sound quality was even better than traditional ones and the response was excellent. So, I started to play them and never found a reason to change my first impression. You don’t have to lose time searching for a great reed before a concert or even when you are practicing, because all of them sounds perfectly in any situation. They are always ready to play so that you can switch from a saxophone to another during a concert without any problem. The tone color and the articulation are great as well as the reliability. Légère reeds make you feel relaxed when you are playing because you know you can count on them.”
Emanuele Dalmaso plays Rampone&Cazzani saxophones; here is his feedback:
"I fell in love with Ramopone&Cazzani Saxophones beacuse of their incredibly huge sound. This allows a classical player to find a deep dark sound, homogeneus from the bottom notes to the
altissimo register. Instruments are available in many finishes and materials so that everyone can find the sound that he's looking for. Every saxophone seems to have his soul and once you find
the one wich is good for you it's hard to play another instrument. Intonation is good and mechanics works well."
Jazzy Chamber Music, a CD with Armando Ghidoni's Music, is now available
On it you will find Swinging Counterpoint for wood wind quartet, Jazzy Flute Challange for flute and piano, Yellow Green for clarinet quartet, Music Wonderland for flute and piano, Virtuoso Swing Solo for clarinet solo, Lirico Jazzy Duo for flute and clarinet, Sweet and Go for saxophone solo, Adagio for flute and harp.
