"Magnetically compelling…an outstanding recording."

"Tom Kerstens is in a rather different league...Sometimes Kerstens makes his guitar sound like a harp, at other times a human voice and he can even convince you that we are hearing orchestral sonorities… Vivid, colourful playing from Tom Kerstens."

"The performances are persuasive and Kerstens’ playing has a warmth and depth…" - GRAMOPHONE
