“Aaron Larget-Caplan is a riveting artist whose musical styling begs immediate attention. His classical guitar performance was a treasure...”
G. Acosta, The Washington Post
"Mr. Larget-Caplan represents the ideal 21st century artist. His performances combine the traditional expressivity with contemporary passion. He is that rare musician that can deliver both virtuosic fireworks and poetic reflection, often integrated into a single interpretation. More than just a guitarist, he is an ambassador of the instrument who continues to champion and commission new music to further its appreciation."
-Thomas Schuttenhelm, composer & guitarist
