Guido Biondi, Il Fatto Quotidiano

Artista capace di creare una fusione pressoché perfetta con la musica elettronica: il risultato è un sound moderno, d’avanguardia, colto e allo stesso tempo capace di una carica emotiva presente in ciascuna delle dieci tracce di Gemini, nato con il sostegno di Puglia Sounds.

A.Ma Records, 2016
"[...] Gemini is direct and intimate and the listener can immediately feel Fabrizio’s complete devotion to his instrument that clearly states the distinctiveness of his music through a personal sound that is, at the same time, delicate and solid, gentle and deep. The virtuosity of his instrument never clouds his melodic development and clarity of structure. The charm of his music cannot be denied and always unveils new surprises. This is the reason why Gemini marks a departure point in Fabrizio Savino’s career, in that his capability of describing intense personal emotions continues to seduce us, ever waiting for his next surprise. [...]".
Alfa Music, 2012
"[...] Opening with Into My Mind we have that intimacy that borders on an ambient quality that allows Savino to paint lyrical portraits of tunes for the listeners imagination. The Persian release title Aram roughly translates to 'peace' or 'serenity' and is the perfect example of a harmonic exploratory for an artist to stretch out and find the lost chord, the missing progression, the melodic soul that completes not just the musician but the listener as well. A challenging recording where boundaries are pushed and comfort zones no longer exist. Melody move into a variety of odd meters and abstraction while never losing accessibility. [...]".

Alfa Music, 2009
"[...] What I immediately noticed about Fabrizio is a musical vision that let him use heterogeneous ingredients with good taste; something that he does very well because his composer aspects join naturally to that of instrumentalist. In the various cd tracks, supported by very good musicians to whom I give my compliments, Fabrizio mixes sounds and colors leaving out his influences filtrated by his own sensitivity. I suggest to listen to his cd. [...]".
