The reception“The second concert in the 2005 series of ‘Music Beyond Borders' was on October 13 and featured the Ars Nova Guitar Quartet from Rome. The night started with a taste of Italy at the pre-concert reception with background music of heart-throb Patrizio Buanne and tracks from his debut CD ‘The Italian' creating the perfect atmosphere. The event was co-presented by RTHK Radio 4 and the Italian Consulate in Hong Kong.

Presenters David Yeung and Stacey RoddaAccommodating one of the largest turnouts for a ‘Music Beyond Borders' event, the Ars Nova Guitar Quartet played to a packed Studio One audience. The members of the quartet - four very talented musicians, all graduates of the Santa Cecilia Conservatory - were: Fabio de Portu, Antonio di Spirito, Gabriele Migliucci and Stefano Mingo. They presented the show themselves and kept everyone entertained between numbers with their obvious affability. Highlights included the Joe Zawinul (Weather Report) 70's jazz classic ‘Birdland' and Leo Brouwer's arrangement of ‘Cubano con Pioggia' from 1939 – their delicate strumming creating an image of Cuba's landscape in the rain. Modern met with classical with the rest of the music devoted to the Italian composers Boccherini, Vivaldi, Rossini and Morricone.

It was an evening of superb strumming. ”
