California Suite was my first composition. Where “officially” I premiered as a composer. It was a graduation gift from my “brother” Joseph Mastroianni who came to Spain from California to study guitar. It is a work with clear influences of Bach, Rachmaninov and Broadway style music. Interestingly, it is one of the most demanded works in my catalog, thanks in large part to the masterful recording that my beloved and admired @Irina Kulikova made of it.
