Notes & Reviews:

Known for expressive and nuanced musical interpretations and an extraordinary technical command, guitarist Robert Gruca performs a program of music by Handel arranged for guitar.

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
They have the same charming melodic expression, and are worth exploring. Robert Gruca presents a delightful collection of two suites and a sonata in excellent performances. Gruca has a master's degree from the Cleveland Institute of Music, where he studied with John Holmquist and Jason Vieaux, and he has something of Vieaux's warmth and invention. His tone is lovely, his pacing sure, his ornamentation tasteful and stylish. The music is lovely and underserved. This is rewarding.
