Reviews

'We must double-underline the stupendous execution on the guitar of signore; he has given us a clear vision of the infinite possibilities of this instrument.'
IL TEMPO, ITALY

'The guitar is a fascinating instrument and he is an incredible player. One example of this was the glittering Grande Sonata by Paganini where the breakneck outer movements framed a beautiful Romanza.'
BERGENS TIDENDE, NORWAY

'No matter where you were last Sunday night, you missed a real treat if you were not at Valley College. One of Britain's finest guitarists gave a concert. Watching He play made one think it was easy. His fingers were like steel-bands as they held the chords and the quickness of his hands resembled lightning as he struck the strings over and over.'
LOS ANGELES VALLEY STAR, USA

'He played each Variation with increasing 'bravura' until the eye could not follow what the ear had just heard. This was a first-class concert.'
BERLINER MORGENPOST, GERMANY

'He belongs to the very front rank of guitarists.'
CLASSICAL GUITAR, UK

'In the Days of Guitar Festival in Bratislava, the greatest events were, first, the concert of the English guitarist who had to play many encores to a very enthusiastic audience.'
