Music Teacher Magazine October 2015 (Helena Ruinard)
"The 10 duets in this volume take in a variety of genres, often in combination. The challenges include numerous double stops, some high position work, intricate rhythms (including compound meters), and intense up-tempo passages. The reward for advanced players is energetic, crowd-pleasing world music duets."
Stringendo Magazine 10/2014 (Hollis Taylor)
(...) Miles & More, in perfetto “stile Igudesman”, è una raccolta che, non v’è dubbio, “costringe” tutti a suonare col sorriso!
