Mattia Cupelli is no stranger to our blog and is certainly one of the pianists that we are more than happy to review again and again. His work - as reminiscent of classical classics as it may be - always carries an intricate note of originality and his recent release ''Breaking - Rework'' is no exception to that pattern.
