This recording placed Carmine Miranda as the youngest cellist to professionally record and release this repertoire worldwide. Alfredo Piatti (1822-1901) is known for composing one of the most difficult set of pieces for the violoncello. The 12 Caprices is a set recognized for its technical difficulty and complexity, equivalent to the Niccolò Paganini 24 Caprices for Solo Violin.

Twenty five year old Carmine Miranda was also awarded “Best Emerging Artist”, “Best Instrumentalist” and a “Silver Medal” for “Outstanding Achievement”. Miranda’s Piatti: 12 Caprices For Solo Cello is receiving rave reviews from music critics and magazines around the world including music critic Mary Ellyn Hutton, Sonograma Magazine, Ritmo Magazine, Fanfare Magazine and many more. Prominent U.K. classical music blog The Classical Reviewer expresses that “Listening there could be two cellists playing, such is Miranda’s technique and phrasing”.

Other critics have said “And so, from memorable moment to memorable moment, Carmine Miranda adds a second recording to his growing legacy” and “our guess is that from this point forward Carmine's talent will always be in high demand”. The album is available to purchase in all stores such as iTunes , Amazon , Barnes and Noble and many more.
