“...Playing the vihuela (a guitar relative), David Rogers held everything together with a few poignant plucks, vigorous strumming and the occasional astonishingly florid solo...” The Washington Post

“...Music to listen to, be amazed by, and to dream upon.”
Akustik Gitarre 6/07

“...first rate instrumental artistry...”

"...David Rogers played his vihuela (a 16th-century precursor to the guitar) not in the tasteful, restrained way of early music groups, but like a lead guitarist in a rock band. He laced the likes of 'De el pobo' with improvised, speedy solos way up into the wailing region of the fingerboard..."
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"A modern master of the classical guitar... David Rogers has a remarkable grasp of 16th Century Baroque guitar music
20th Century Guitar
