“Sartor’s playing was characterized by the smoothness and assurance of his technique that seemed almost casual, even in difficult moments. This contributed to the artist’s natural shaping of the musical line and the grace of the rapid figurations in the first movement… the most intimate view of Sartor’s nimble fingering, fluent long runs, and wonderfully pensive, articulate solo passages… in the rousing Finale, his rhythmic acuity was striking in staking out the movement’s opposition of guitar and orchestra. The audience loved it… a truly magical spell.”

The Buffalo News, Buffalo, NY.


“Sartor’s playing was full of color, strongly voiced and beautifully ornamented…his playing bent the musical line for expressivity, never too much and just enough. And again, the dialog with orchestra was exceptional.”
