"The music on 'Terruño' proves to be some of the most expressive and idiomatic guitar music in the repertoire.. Terruño contains some of the most exciting pieces recently written for solo guitar, and uses every aspect of the instrument. Rojas executes the fast scales and arpeggios, harmonics, rasgueados, and percussive tapping techniques with incredible precision, tone, and clarity. She performs this music as if she has always known it, with the deepest understanding and passion and her expert musicianship shine through this recording."
Brad Conroy, Guitar International
"Having previously reviewed two CDs
of the exceptional Paraguayan guitarist Berta Rojas, I am finally almost out of superlatives. Everything she performs is presented with impeccable taste: every phrase and nuance has seemingly been well thought about before committing to disc or the concert platform."
Steve Marsh, Classical Guitar Magazine
"From the first playful notes of Vincent Lindsay-Clark's Laura, one is certain that Rojas is an artist unrestrained by technique and able to relate to the guitar within a realm of deep expression
. This recording [Terruno], consistent with other issues from Rojas' OnMusic label, achieves a realistic guitar sound, and the liner notes, in both English and Spanish, are informative, clear, and artistically presented. Brava!"
Jim McCutcheon, Soundboard Magazine
..."there are some absolute treasures here. It is hard to single out one composition above another." [...].
"To play the guitar like this you must deeply love the instrument and have strong empathy for the chosen programme;
not just because it is topical, fashionable or 'commercially correct' but because it permeates the soul and quickens the heartbeat."
Zane Turner,Guitar International
