"A soloist of high calibre."
"His interpretations are among the best I have ever heard."
"The playing of the Danish guest showed fire as well as a hidden glow. His precision and security is overwhelming and is combined with a deep sensibility for expression and specific tone colours. His performance of the Albeniz pieces showed Carsten Gröndahl´s ability of moving deep into the musical language of different cultures and to transform the notes not only into resonance of the strings but also of the soul."
"A very mature, glittering and high-classed guitar performance."
"Gröndahl's playing showed technical brilliance and a great clarity without sounding too academic. Seperate chords were very clearly differentiated, the result sometimes reminded of Glenn Gould´s piano playing."
"Grøndahl is the ideal of a musician. He has a natural, expressive and communicative presence on stage."
"Grøndahl's intensive engagement and virtuosity is very impressing and promissing."
"This virtuoso piece was masterly played. Intesity and clarity, with well defined pauses and a heavenly pianissimo. A breathtaking performance."
"Grøndahl is in demand of the technique but he uses it in the service of the music and he has a lot on his hart as a musician."
Carsten Grøndahl was born in Aalborg Denmark in 1961. He was educated at the Academies of Music in Aalborg, Malmoe and Copenhagen…
