Here are some of the comments you can find "...grave and powerful emotional content...", "...he has the gift of empathy and a moving way of expressing this musically...", "...I encourage music lovers to investigate this album....", "...pizzicato polyrhythms at a technically virtuosic pace and tight ensemble by the Brodsky, with interpolated bowed themes of great lyrical beauty...", "...From a listening standpoint I actually find Jorge Grundman's music quite new, exciting and unique...", "...The music is sad, slow and lyrical....", "...which to my ears is pure genius...", "...I was blown away by a new CD that drifted in the other day called God’s Sketches by the Brodsky Quartet featuring the work of the Spanish “music writer” Jorge Grundman....", "...somewhat reminiscent of Gavin Bryars’s orchestrations. I can see why you like it and hope to hear more of this piece..."
