What people are saying

Magnetically compelling … an outstanding recording.International Record Review

“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.” BBC Radio 3, CD Review

The performances are persuasive and Kerstens’ playing has a warmth and depth … Gramophone
