Album Notes
Croatian Songs

Croatia is an old country and a new state. Through the snippets of the world media, the birth of the new state and its circumstances were initially shaped to an image of a wounded and a war-torn region. Some still may have such recollections, but nothing is farther from truth than that today. Today, there is peace in Croatia, and the time has arrived to return to the usual business (tourism primarily), and celebrate other marvelous things from this wonderful country…like its songs.

In re-creating the folk tunes from his home country, Branimir Krstic was reconnecting the songs to some styles found elsewhere in the classical music. Although his approach was slightly more modern, he is ready to acknowledge the influence from the works of greats such as Chopin, Schumann, Lauro, and – especially – Haydn, the first great Croatian composer.

The collected guitar works of Branimir Krstic consists mainly of world premiere recordings. Brilliantly performed by the author, who also supervised every step of its production, the series not only introduces a unique and original body of work to the world audience, but also shows that the most suitable way to present such works is through creatively harnessing the power and possibilities of the internet.


"His works witness a precise imagination of sound ... I am certain that he would greatly contribute to composition and its realization as an instrumentalist as well.”
Mauricio Kagel

"An intellectual and passionate composer , who - as a first rate guitarist- belongs to rare double talents of creative and reproductive arts."
Johannes Fritsch

" excellent musician and composer..."
Sir Peter Maxwell Davies

"A deeply committed composer with a profoundly subjective voice."
Edwin Roxburgh

“[Branimir] is extraordinarily intelligent, learns with lightning speed…in the shortest period of time he mastered a huge amount of repertoire with apparent ease…his sound is strong and his technique nearly infallible…”
Eliot Fisk, classical guitarist

“…through guitar strings he enchanted his audience…”
Dürener Anzeiger

“The sounds are perfectly calculated and balanced, yet the outcome is always unpredictable and explosive.”
Kölnische Rundschau

“an excellent concert…emotional richness and technical perfection…Six strings have found their master…”
Dürener Zeitung

“...very refined versions that show great virtuosity…”
Beatlemania Magazin, review of “Sgt. Pepper For Classical Guitar”

“... refined performances on all the tracks...Reportedly the first classical version of the Sgt. Pepper album – a hard act to follow?”
Beatles Unlimited Magazine, review of “Sgt. Pepper For Classical Guitar”
