    Hello, I listen every Sunday ! I caught some of what you said about Pietro Bianchetti. Something to the effect that his music is basically only known to Peter Blanchett ?? Did I hear that right ? I could find next to nothing about him on the web, Curious, Thanks for the wonderful music. Great selections. Tim Higgins. Interlochen, Mi

      Hi! I’m so glad you liked that music by Pietro Bianchetti on the (ahem) April 1st program! Pietro is the Italian version of Peter, and Bianchetti is (ostensibly) the Italian version of Blanchette. Are you following? 😉 That piece in on the cd ARCHGUITAR RENAISSANCE. Thanks for your interest!
