Paul Galbraith -- "The Brahms Guitar"

“What many had come to see and hear was the revolutionary change he has brought to playing the guitar . . . the results were truly remarkable, with an amazing clarity and a huge dynamic range I have never before heard from any guitarist. The audience was held spellbound.” – The Sunday Times

dynamics and articulation... I can't imagine these works played with more conviction,

expression, and sheer joy!" - Kenneth Keaton, American Record Guide
