Artist's Website

"nothing short of remarkable."

"Stephen Reck has produced a wide ranging, engaging, and highly satisfying album that showcases his extraordinary mastery of classical guitar playing. His choice of music has resulted in a wonderful range of styles, textures, and influences that sit seamlessly together with each piece enhancing the next.

--Jeff Perkins, BlogCritics

"Clean...pleasant tone" "His best work here is the most challenging piece, Dodgson's Fantasy Divisions, which he navigates with more involvment and imagination…"

--American Record Guide

"An imaginative choice of 12 works, sensitively played, intimately recorded and nicely presented"

--Jeremy Nicholas, Classic Fm Magazine-June 2008
