"Maestro de la Guitarra" (Acordes, Spain)

"This is really an incredible guitarist!" (Acoustic Guitar, Germany)

"Un auténtico virtuoso de la Guitarra" (Audio Clásica, Spain)

"A hard act to follow" (Boston Globe, USA)

"...he belongs without any doubt to the small circle of great guitarists..." (Gazeta Wyborcza, Poland)

"J.T. Kreusch's playing is very intense and expressive, with boundless heights and depths, full of sensuousness..." (Gitarre und Laute, Germany)

"Kreusch is an original musical thinker, with a colorful and dramatic sound, who knows how to tap emotional wellspring...Few have played this Villa-Lobos Etudes so well..." (Guitar Review, USA)

"J.T. Kreusch's concert was in a different league...The unfamiliar pacing and color-Kreusch knows how to exploit vibrato as many famous violinists do not- seemed to reveal untapped resources in the music and to subvert convention...this was a recital to remember..." (The Irish Times, Ireland)

"Highlight of the week" (Philadelphia Inquirer, USA)

"J.T. Kreusch does not just play the guitar, he lives it. Delicacy, sensitivity, a softly nuanced tone, tender sounds, more caressed than plucked paint miniature tonal pictures of an introverted fragility..." (Süddeutsche Zeitung, Germany)
