Contemporary instrumentalist Andre Feriante released a number of medatative and spiritual albums during the 1990s and 2000s that showcased his masterful command of classical guitar. The Italian-born artist began studying classical guitar in Rome and by age 17 was performing Bach, Vivalidi, Albeniz, and Scarlatti in concert throughout Europe. Two years later, at age 19, he took a sabbatical from college to spend time on the beaches of Spain, where he found much inspiration in the Mediterranean surroundings. While in Spain he went to Madrid to study with maestro Andres Segovia, a major influence on the young artist's subsequent work. Feriante debuted as a recording artist in 1990 with Remembering You, followed by Angelica in 1995, Serenade in 1997, Incantations in 2001, and Fuego de Luna in 2002.
