KDFC Radio, July 2015

The Vienna-based Guitar4mation presents unique arrangements of piano music for guitar quartet. With their new CD, Trans4mation, they also build a bridge between the world of European Romantic music and the world of Latin jazz. Imagine a Chopin Piano Prelude transformed into a waltz by Brazilian Antonio Jobim! © 2015 KDFC Radio Read complete review

CBC, February 2015

In addition to playing faithful, impeccable arrangements of piano miniatures by Chopin and Schumann…[Guitar4mation] dabble in a bit of stylistic transformation. A Viennese waltz morphs into a bossa nova; Argentinian tango paves the way for tracks by jazz greats Pat Metheny and Chick Corea. It’s amazing how the stylistic differences among these pieces appear to vanish once they’re united in one recital by these four guitar masters.

It’s also worth noting the beautiful recorded sound on this album, giving not only a full ensemble sound but also a clear picture of the individual guitarists. © 2015 CBC Read complete review
