"This is an artist who knows his craft and is comfortable enough to break down music that everyone is familiar with and then build it up to give us something unexpected yet still familiar."
Review Graveyard (UK)
[...] he jazzes up the classical ones and classicalizes the others. And yet, when one is finished listening, one is left with a sense of awe that he can split his musical mind so well while being able to absorb both genres into unified wholes."
Lynn René Bayley
The Art Music Lounge (USA)
