This is the music from Buenos Aires! Argentinian music to the world! Forza Puccini!!!”

Elmer Bernstein  (US film composer), Los Angeles Oct. 20002.-

“I am dictating this letter to you in English, please forgive me, but the message is very important.  I always have great memories of our collaboration.  I will never forget your conducting of my Guitar Concierto at The Luna Park.  Coincidentally, I would like to recommend that you do the same for an incredible Argentinean guitar player from Rosario, Sergio Puccini.  I am sure that it is possible for you to get back the score and the parts of the piece for such a performance. Sergio Puccini has recorded some of my guitar pieces and they are impeccable.  He could provide you with the recordings of Romerias.  I hope that all has been well for you over the years.  Please accept my warmest regards”
