Aktuelle Solo-CD: Johannes Tonio Kreusch Plays Bach

"Es gibt - weiß Gott - eine Menge Bach-Aufnahmen mit klassischer Gitarre. Und trotzdem ist diese besonders. Sie ist von großer gestalterischer Kraft, so dass man meinen könnte, man begegne hier dem ursächlichen Genius des Barockkomponisten." Fono Forum

"Johannes Tonio Kreusch´s playing is very intense and expressive, with boundless heights and depths, full of sensuousness. With Bach, he has a completely independent idea of ​​musical and formal rigor. What at first seems like nonconformism is really a desire to bring to light new and overlooked aspects of this great music.“ Guitar and Lute Magazine
