Dear Mr. Caliendo,
Recently I was priviledged to hear and see you perform with Linda Cykert at Elon College, Elon NC.
anticipation of the performance, I had visited your website and enjoyed
the audio samples and couldn't wait for the performance! As a result
of the samplings offered, I ordered the Caliente CD just a few days
prior to your performance at Elon. It arrived today. Listening once
again to your music prompted me to write you.
you and Linda was a rare musical pleasure! To see two musicians care
and caress and put each note carefully into play was a joy hard to
describe. The interplay and complimentary artistry you both gave during
the performance made it such an intimate experience. Two instruments
expertly played every emotion we experience daily, the joy, sorrow,
melancholy, reflection, wonderment and more.
was not a doubt that you both cared deeply for perfection of not only
each note, but it's delivery with it's emotional intent. It is rare to
see one musician enjoying the delivery of every note and nuance of the
music in such detail but to have two do so in perfect concert was beyond
I sit here listening once again to the magnificent music you wrote and
performed, I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your
dedication and artistry. But more importantly, for giving a perfect
musical outlet to such incredible emotions.
you humbly and most sincerely. I do hope you come back to Elon in the
future! Until then I will have to enjoy your music through recordings
and mentally call to mind the visual of your performance.
