Bruno's music is so special I keep his CDs in a carved wooden box... the original release of "InTRO" has seen daylight quite often and the expanded re-release is a welcome addition to my collection. The depth and breadth of this album is extraordinary, but the variety reflected in these soundworlds never distracts - rather it flows seamlessly from one track to the next. Difficult to pick a single favorite song. A masterpiece!
Favorite track: InTROworld.

‘In his nine compositions of imaginary 'InTROspective' Sanfilippo explores the interest in the unfettered possibilities of dreams. Its impact is strongly imaginative and cinematic, featuring deep piano interludes, great synthesizer pads, field recordings, soft soaring sound textures and transparent soundscapes’
"InTRO is excellent, a little deeper than your previous albums and with a lot of details" Paul Rijkens [iO Pages Mag]
"Pure introspective beauty and a real treat for ears and soul" Bert Strolenberg [E-dition Mag]
"InTRO is one of the finest ambient releases we've heard this year" [Synthtopia.com]
"Every track on this CD is superb" Jourdan Laik [Lounging Sound Radio]
"A superb dose of ambience whose power is understated but vibrant, evoking a series of entries into the inner mind" Matt Howarth [Sonic Curiosity]
"Harmonious album that draws the listener into restful reverie - on into emotional swells and wonderfully indulgent quiet melancholy" Morpheus Music UK
"I have to admit an special admiration for this composer. There are composers that create their own music, but besides this Bruno Sanfilippo introduces us in it with this cd full of dreams and hopes, a job to taste little by little, slowly while we submerge in all the ideas that brings note by note, track by track" Roberto Vales [Lost Frontier Radio]
"Bruno Sanfilippo make a visionary statement of such extraordinary beauty and diversity that it seems to have been conceived by a collective of gifted artists. Marius-Christian Burcea" Journeys to the Infinite Radio
"A sensual and memorable piece of work" Mike G. [Ambient Music Guide]
"Each of the 9 tracks on the release carry a completely different resonance yet have in common an almost primal progression of fluidity that will entrench you in the spaces around the sound which resound more than the deftly weaved electronic notes themselves.
InTRO explores the Italo Argentino-based composer’s cinematic style through an eclectic array of digital arrangements to provide a textured yet transparent sound which comes together soulfully and delicately. Whilst there is a diverse array of soundscapes included in the album, each of them fit together perfectly to provide over an hour of transiently orchestrated lucidity.
" by Amelia Vandergas A&RFactory
"A delicate blend of sounds and feelings combining to create a full environment and space. Lovely work. I've often thought that the mettle of an artist is proven in their ability to work equally comfortably in a variety of styles. With "InTRO", Bruno Sanfilippo has shown that he's capable of working in a number of different forms, moving easily between styles and sounds, showing an ear and an ability in all of the areas he presents here. Certainly Sanfilippo's reputation as an artist to watch is well deserved, and I would cite "InTRO" as a fine piece of evidence to support that claim" Pingthings
"Ein Traum von Musik
Vorstellen muss man eine musikalische Größe wie Bruno Sanfilippo nun wirklich nicht mehr. Seit Jahren beeindruckt der argentinian Komponist und Pianist mit seinen Alben auf einem Niveau, dass man manchmal die Musik kaum in Worte fassen kann. Das letzte Werk „Unity“ reiht sich ein in die Kategorie „zeitlose Kunst“ und wird hoffentlich von späteren Generationen noch gefeiert, so wie heute. In diesen Tagen erblickt das neue Album InTRO das Licht der Welt, wobei es sich um eine Neuauflage des gleichnamigen Werkes von 2006 handelt. Und trotzdem ist das 2018 Album InTRO völlig anders.
Bruno Sanfilippo ist zweifellos ein Ausnahmekünstler, ein Virtuose am Klavier. Sein Musikverständnis scheint grenzenlos, weit über bekannte Dimensionen hinaus. Das ist sicherlich keine Untertreibung, die moderne Klassik vom Spanier ist geschätzt und geliebt in jeder Ecke unserer Welt. Seine Apperzeption spiegelt sich daher auch auf dem neuen Album wieder. Die Neuinterpretationen der einzelnen Stücke auf InTRO driften zwar sehr in den Musikbereich des Ambient ab, beinhalten trotzdem den neoklassischen Kern, so wie Bruno Sanfilippo diese 2006 erschaffen hat" Gezeitenstrom Musikmagazin
Drifting, Almost Falling Blog wrote: "Sanfilippo is no stranger to this blogs short life and is once of the most varied and adept performers/composers under the umbrella that is Modern Classical, for which he is arguably best known. Sanfilippo has brought a reissue of his 2006 release alongside 2 compositions from the same year “InTROpolar” and “InTROsense”... ...
