Raffaele Calace, second son of the luthier Antonio, received his musical education at the Conservatory of Naples, where he studied violin; but he graduated in composition under the guidance of Paolo Serrao and Francesco Ancona. His musical activity was devoted above all to plucked string instruments, and he became a virtuoso performer on them and a composer of music for them.Calace – contrary to what one might expect, considering the great number of pieces that have been published for this combination of instruments – composed a version for mandolin and guitar only of the works presented here: they are still present and available for this combination of instruments in the present-day catalogue of the Calace Editions.
“The music is attractive and catchy and never pretends to be anything more than tuneful entertainment...The level of technical execution and musicianship by the duo is first class and mandolin players will probably love it. Indeed, for them it could well be a must-buy CD.” MusicWeb International
