Jakob Henriques plays music from the 19th

"OK, so Mertz is not my favorite music...when Jakob Henriques starts to play the Fantaisie Hongroise I am nervous. I am relieved to hear a good tone and rhythmic focus. I am relieved to hear his rhythm become languid without being sappy. I am relieved to hear the mood shift to introspective without wallowing. When the arpeggios kick in I am pleased to hear some impressive speed-this music requires the occasional fireworks."

Jakob Henriques, guitar

"Swedish guitarist Jakob Henriques displays technical poise and sound musicianship on this program of familiar works. Henriques´s tone is very attractive--smooth, round and consistent; his technique is a model of clarity, and the clean production captures it well."
