Alberto's work was incredible, he paid an extortionate amount of attention to the detail of the composition and performed it as beautifully and precisely as was expected. This man is a genius of classical music recordings. I shall most certainly be working with him again for any orchestral projects in the near future.
Brilliant work made by excellent musician!
Alberto is absolutely pro, with a very fine feeling for jazz music, extremely friendly and responsible.
I love all the tracks he arranged and produced, can´t wait them to hit the airplay! I´ll be so happy to work together with Alberto again!
Amazing, just absolutely amazing!!!
Alberto was a pleasure to work with and is a great collaborator who will take any ideas you have and turn them into a musical reality. I would recommend him to anyone looking for quality compositions done within a very quick timeframe.
I was happy to work with him.
He's the best. I'll start a new job with him.
Best of Best.
