15 Questions to Frederic Zigante

Complete editions are Frederic Zigante's specialty: He recorded all of Nicolo Paganini's guitar works, the entire guitar catalogue of Villa-Lobos, as well as the cosmos of Mauro Giuliani's "Le Rossiniane" (only recently re-released as a double disc box set on ARTS). Behind this desire for integrity hides no pathologically prolific mind, but a man who searches for profundity and who wants to use the power of interpretation to the good. The latter implies that Zigante eschews (or may we even say "despises") the modern-day tendency to submit a Classical works to the arbitrariness of subjectivity, to change it, alter it or even leave out certain passages for more easy digestability.......
