"The speed at which Kotronakis can 'knock out' some of this music is quite breathtaking.This is a startlingly exciting recording which captures the amazing artistry of a very distinct player" Classical Guitar Magazine
" It is obvious that Kotronakis has a tremendous technique. His playing is clean, and his rhythms are ultra-crisp. At the same time, his command of legato playing is excellent." Classical.net
