Brian May (of Queen)
" Real quality in an affectionate tribute of instrumental bravura, poetry and nostalgia"
"…the intricate guitar parts, remain central to the mix and are superbly recorded. In May's much-covered Who wants to live forever?, Bonell performs minus orchestra, again with a degree of conviction few could possibly have anticipated."
"…a touch of pure spirituality. Bonell adds all his expressive powers to the natural charisma of his mature interpretative art, in a repertoire ideally suited to him"
Guitart magazine, Italy
"Supple rhythm and passionately lyrical phrasing. A masterclass in magic"
BBC Music Magazine
"…unfailingly seductive. Bonell possesses that rare ability to ‘smile' through the instrument as in Albéniz's popular Granada, and also makes a thing of wonder out of Barrios' Julia Florida."
Classic CD Magazine, UK
"…A poetic exponent of 'the miniature orchestra'"
Gramophone magazine, UK
"The finest recording available"
Penguin CD Guide
"…a sensitive and poetic exponent… a varied and subtly employed tonal palette and lightly worn virtuosity."
"Magical, improvisatory playing"
Harmonie Magazine, France
"A magnificent triumph"
Classical Music Magazine
"There is real passion in his playing"
Gramophone Magazine, UK
