TESTIMONIAL

What oTHERS Say About KAROL

"...The opening 8 valses poéticos H147 of Enrique Granadosa Campińa was a unity of musicality, artistic fantasy, aesthetics and techniques..."
Ingerborg Šišková
"His interpretation is meaningful, you can feel profound understanding of musical material... he already became world guitar personality.“
prof. Jozef Zsapka
„ ... despite his youth is an exceptional, very musical, with a strong perspective to future.“
Arturo Zeballos
“By listening to Karol's CD we can say that he is one of the most expressive talents of his generation, with an exuberant technical mastery that makes us forget the technical difficulty of the works in order to enjoy a flowing and energetic musical discourse. Interpretation preserves the aesthetic character of each composer, highlighting the brilliance, exuberance and lyricism of Spanish music, as well as the rich polyphony and depth of Bach music. We wish our colleague and dear friend the well deserved success for this exceptional work! ”
Cecilia y Fernando - Duo Siqueira Lima
"His interpretation reveals absolute top view and deep musicality and is an excellent conclusion during one hour listening to the interpretation. After hearing this recording, I can only congratulate with a deep recognition. Again, one excellent musician among the guitarists."
Prof. József Eötvös ArtD. - Liszt Ferenc Zeneművészeti Egyetem
