|The guitar Maestro Christer Karlberg is often seen and heard as a studio musician both in Swedish TV and on Swedish radio. This solo guitar CD, with music ranging from the renaissance via flaming Spanish and Argentine tango to contemporary pieces, gives a rich view over a very broad guitarist, playing both alto and prim guitar.|
Norra Västerbotten: " Christer Karlberg, a full-fledged guitar player - it´s a pure pleasure to go with him on this guitar music Odyssey through history with a string of musical pearls. (---) ...sweet guitar sounds from four centuries, renaissance to contemporary."
SvD: " ...and I think I hear an echoe of late master guitarist Ulrik Neumann´s romantic warmth and fine sense of humour. Is it the sign of the guitar that it can house a full little orchestra?"
Sydsvenskan: " He plays with a wellknown musicality and really keeps it goin´! His vitality as a musician with many strings in his talent is here shown in full light!"
Fanfare Magazine: " Christer Karlberg has been active throughout Sweden as well as Scandinavia, Germany, France and Russia. That explains why he is virtually unknown to Americans, It is our loss, for he is a fine guitarist, Each piece is well played, good sound and reasonable notes round out a mostly attractive issue."
