FAVORITE MUSIC QUOTES:
"For the guitar is the most unpredictable and
least reliable musical instrument in existence...and also the sweetest,
the warmest, the most delicate, whose melancholic voice awakes in
our soul exquisite reveries". - Andres
"...The recital was lovely, and his music was spellbinding, as always."
"His guitar is at once... gentle, soft, strong, rhythmic, dreamy..."
"He touches the strings at times like a hammer, at times like a feather..."
"His encore, a tribute to Gershwin, was sheer beauty. Simple and advanced harmonies, sensitivity, phrasing, an overall joy..."
"His playing is characterized by feeling and refinement. His legato touch, by which he occasionally bridges a long interval with a glissando of ethereal delicacy, is a sheer delight..."
