Tim Panting, ClassicalGuitar Magazine

 

“…Berta Rojas, guitarist extraordinaire…”

Mark Adamo, WashingtonPost

 

“Onlyonce in a great while does a classical CD come along which is so impeccable inevery aspect of professionalism: heart touching musical artistry, interesting repertoire, and excellent technical production. Paraguayan guitarist Berta Rojas‘Cielo Abierto’ is one of these.”

Jim McCutcheon, Soundboard

 

“…avery full audience was treated to an evening full of warmth, sensitivity andmagic, beginning the very moment Ms. Rojas stepped onto the stage. The elegance,grace, rhythm, warmth, strength, sadness and humour were stunningly balanced in what would seem a perfect combination of composer and performer. The result Atruly magical performance.”

Hayley Savage, Bristol GuitarSociety Newsletter

 

“Themusic on ‘Terruno’ proves to be some of the most expressive and idiomatic guitar music in the repertoire.. Terruno contains some of the most exciting pieces recently written for solo guitar, and uses every aspect of the instrument. Rojas executes the fast scales and arpeggios, harmonics, rasgueados, and percussive tapping techniques with incredible precision, tone, and clarity. She performs this music as if she has always known it, with the deep estunder standing and passion and her expert musicianship shines through this recording.”

Brad Conroy, GuitarInternational

 

“This concert was an entirely masterful performance…”

Martin Slater, SouthamptonGuitar Society Newsletter

 

“Berta Rojas is a master guitarist who displays outstanding technical and musical capabilitiesin this recording ‘Intimate Barrios’. Her feeling for the music imbues these interpretations with qualities that reflect what one imagines Barrios originally intended…The qualities of Barrios are aurally conveyed to us through the music by Rojas: love of beauty, goodness, spirituality and love itself. There is greattenderness in some of the interpretations but Rojas is capable ofchameleon-like swings in mood as required in La Catedral, and the transitionfrom Choro da Saudade to Las Abejas. Her tremolo is as smooth as glass and the often remarkably challenging technical components of the music are disguised by formidable technique, making them seem non-existent. Not to be missed if theoriginal release escaped you.”

Zane Turner, MusicWebInternational

 

“As aperformer, Rojas ranks among the top players of the day as she is both technically proficient and emotionally expressive on every piece.”

Dr. Matthew Warnock, ModernGuitar Magazine
