Lentini Front Cover

“[Lentini’s] imposing Symphony No. 1 (“Through Time and Place”), the joyous Sinfonia di Festa and the profoundly lyrical “Three Sacred Meditations” convey a palpable optimism and hope sorely needed in this difficult year. It’s easy to get lost in the embrace of these sounds.”

Chicago Tribune Best Albums of 2020 on James Lentini’s THROUGH TIME AND PLACE.

Prisma Vol. 4

“The work has a broad wash of mystery, as if looking out from a perspective of a high place as shadows of time and memories travel in waves over a vast emotional landscape below.”

International Alliance for Women in Music Journal on PRISMA VOL. 4 featuring works by Brian Belet, Mara Gibson, Rain Worthington, Angel Sánchez, Adrienne Albert, and John Franek.
