July, 2023 - Due to popular demand, we are providing a separate release of the CD that was originally designed to accompany the 2023 Solo Guitar Sheet Music Book entitled "A Lifetime in Music" by Tom Salvatori. This CD represents a collection of the 19 solo guitar pieces featured in the sheet music book (composed between 1995 and 2022). The CD is an excellent introduction to the solo guitar work of Tom Salvatori.
June, 2023 - A new single release hits the airwaves! Inspired by a Violin Solo performed by Vadim Gluzman during a recent CSO concert at Symphony Center, Tom Salvatori has arranged a sublime Valentyn Silvestrov composition entitled 'Serenade' for solo nylon string guitar. Enjoy!
June 2023 - Patate Piccole, the short story excerpt from 'A Lifetime in Music' Sheet Music Book is now available as a 19-page short story book, about guitar composer Tom Salvatori looking forward to the pleasant experience of sharing his 'small potatoes' with the next generation of nylon string guitarists during his retirement years. Salvatori received a press review early in his composing career that described his work as being “...of the small potato variety.” Instead of feeling slighted, he embraced the style description and adopted it as a new nickname. It is likely that that comment stuck in his craw as unfinished business because decades later, ‘Patate Piccole’ came pouring out of him...in just a couple hours! Buy from Lulu Bookstore.
May 2023 - New Sheet Music Book and CD! Tom Salvatori: A Lifetime in Music - Sheet Music Collection - Solo Guitar. Tom Salvatori (b.1958) has been quietly composing original instrumentals for the nylon string guitar in his own self-constructed corner of the music world for over fifty years. All told, Salvatori has composed, produced, and recorded 150+ guitar pieces, which have achieved over forty million streams and downloads across the digital service platforms to date. "Tom Salvatori: A Lifetime in Music" (2023), is Salvatori's 3rd Published Sheet Music Book, available directly from Salvatori Productions. Click Here.
The new Sheet Music Book is a 51-page career retrospective collection that features nineteen previously unpublished solo nylon string guitar pieces composed by Salvatori between 1995 and 2023. The Sheet Music Book also introduces ‘Patate Piccole’ (Small Potatoes), a short story told in parable form that reflects on Salvatori’s upcoming retirement as he looks forward to the pleasant experience of sharing his guitar compositions with the next generation of guitarists. Salvatori received a press review early in his composing career that described his work as being “...of the small potato variety.” Instead of feeling slighted, he embraced the style description and adopted it as a new nickname. It is likely that that comment stuck in his craw as unfinished business because decades later, ‘Patate Piccole’ came pouring out of him...in just a couple hours!
In addition, "Tom Salvatori: A Lifetime in Music" features an accompanying CD, blog posts, press reviews and a brief scrapbook-styled Autobiography (including pictures) that summarize Salvatori's lifetime in music and his unique composing perspective for the nylon string guitar.
