Album Notes
"There are quite a number of examples of bands and artists that have covered a Beatles album as a whole. Here’s a new addition to that category, being a classical guitar rendition of all the Sgt. Pepper songs, set in the same track listing as the original album. Instead of going for the easy way by picking the usual batch of guitar-friendly tunes, Croatia-born Krstic’s intention to try and re-interpret this classic Beatles album may be applauded with great enthusiasm. Although songs like Within You Without You or A Day In The Life are obvious choices to check on his talent and skills, his refined performances on all the tracks leave no doubt about that. He both ensures that all the original melodies remain quite well intact as well as takes in subtle melody snippets of his own, with versatile guitar playing - adding occasional Spanish flavours, an orchestral sound or a Third Man Theme-like sound in When I’m 64. Reportedly the first classical version of the Sgt. Pepper album – a hard act to follow?"

Beatles Unlimited Magazine, Issue 189, December 2006

“...very refined versions that show great virtuosity…”

Beatlemania Magazine, review of “Sgt. Pepper For Classical Guitar”

"The sounds are perfectly calculated and balanced, yet the outcome is always unpredictable and explosive."

Kölnische Rundschau

"...emotional richness and technical perfection..."

Great music/playing
That's Beatles for 21st Century!


Extremely original
After the first listening I was confused- brilliant playing, but it took me some time to understand all the ideas completely. Now as someone who loves both classical music and Beatles I can only say- the best Beatles cover versions I have ever heard!


Great music and an inspired performance
Branimir Krstic, in recreating a seminal work of the Beattles for classical guitar, displays a mastery of the art of elevating good tunes into something much greater. The music is beautiful and elegant, and the performance is inspired. John Lennon would be pleased, and maybe a little envious!
