American Record Guide, May/June 2013
Goluses is the guitar professor for the Eastman School of Music. He is masterly, a musician's musician. Anyone with the technique, intellect, and heart to tackle a program like this is to be admired. Indeed, strength is the adjective that comes most to mind when I've heard his performances. He has a solid sound, with a preference for assertive playing. His sound is beautiful - he never overplays and has a wide palate of colors. Goluses handles this with aplomb, without neglecting the many felicitous moments along the way. Goluses can stand beside those, and is as fine a reading as any currently available.
