“ FOUR STARS... 10 solo acoustic performances that resonate with verve. Sturm’s style encompasses elements of classical, American roots music and flamenco, and he mixes them so seamlessly and constantly that they become their own anagram... each piece is suffused with tremendous energy and movement.” - DownBeat February, 2011 by James Hale

“Sturm is a prodigious talent and is an unparalleled virtuoso of the nylon stringed guitar. “Balance” is highly recommended and should be required listening for all fans of contemporary music.” - Minor 7th Webzine Jan/Feb 2011 by James Scott

“Not since the likes of Charlie Byrd, Laurindo Almeda, Bola Sete, Eddie Duran, and Gene Bertoncini has the classic guitar made such a successful cross over into jazz... The lute and the guitar have a long relationship with the duende (the soulful muse as sought after in particular by Spanish guitarists). BALANCE is hard and fast evidence that the duende lives in the very soul of the guitar and in its blessed legacy of modern soul mates such as Rolf Sturm.” - Jazz Inside Magazine December 2010 by Bob Gish
