ANGELO GILARDINO

“Among the young people who, having completed their guitar studies in the conservatory, continued their musical training towards composition, Kevin Swierkosz-Lenart is certainly one of the most gifted and most studious.
His works for and with guitar denote a cultured hand and, at the same time, a fresh and uninhibited musical imagination, which knows how to avoid both idiomatic banalities and academisms of the first in the class. He is building his own stylistic identity and firmly belongs to the category of composers who believe in the need to recover a line of direct communication with listeners, dismantling the inveterate distrust of contemporary music”.

DUSAN BOGDANOVIC

“Though he has been long time connected to the guitar world, Kevin Swierkosz-Lenart is, so to say, a new-born composer. Kevin’s compositions are genuine and deep explorations of his humanity; they are creative works that are conceived with great inspiration and intelligence.”

CRISTIANO PORQUEDDU

“Lenart composes with mastery of the compositional technique and complete knowledge of the peculiarities of the guitar: a combination that no interpreter should let slip away”.

FRANCESCO DOMINICI BURACCINI

“Kevin’s music is timeless, perfectly balanced between past and future”.

ANGELO COLONE

“Jeux d’enfants […] is an expression of a remarkable compositional maturity, a truly valuable work for a debuting composer”.

GIOVANNI MARTINELLI

“Kevin’s music stands out peremptorily from every trend, making the compositional process a ‘itinerarium mentis’ from which the yearning for a light and poignant sound at the same time transpires, sought with extreme constancy and with the inalienable conviction that beauty, although always partially revealed, is a real reason for living”.

LORENZO MICHELI PUCCI

“The music of Kevin Swierkosz-Lenart is partly a synthesis filtered by two contemporary guitar giants like Gilardino and Bogdanovic. The detachment from his references is well expressed by a sentence dictated by himself: I write for an existing guitar, wich has still to be imagined”.

EDOARDO TRITTO

“Kevin’s music, in its multifaceted forms, paints infinite worlds; it gives the guitar a new voice, which becomes an expression of pure beauty, restlessness and nostalgia”
