"Individually, Kirk Hanser and John McClellan are two of the finest guitarists in the country. Put the two together and, well, you do the math! Be prepared to hear guitar played at its highest order.
Their new recording, "La Vida Breve," should be in the collection of anyone who loves passionate, beautiful music."
- Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine
"The Hanser-McClellan Guitar Duo has a new disc, "La Vida Breve," and it's a beauty. The pair . . . plays with an instinctive togetherness that makes them sound almost like one inspired player instead of two. The Latin American-flavored CD offers several appealing works by Jorge Morel, Manuel de Falla and Sergio Assad, among others, in 13 well-nigh flawless tracks . . . "
