International Review Excerpts|
"Maestro Radford is a virtuoso of the guitar"
-- Diario Latino - San Salvador
"The emotional transformation evoked by Ronald Radford was so complete that a
Gypsy dancer in the audience jumped on the stage to accompany the artist!"
-- Más Noticias - Monterrey, Mexico
An absolutely extraordinary event! He received tremendous applause from the
grateful audience in the Poli forum Cultural Sequeiros. The grace and quality
of his interpretations are equal to those on any Flamenco stage in Madrid,
Seville or Andalucía. Radford interpretations are second to none. The artist
received excited applause which brought him back to the stage time after time
for more encores. He was given a final rousing ovation, as many bid him
farewell with emotional Oles!
-- El Universal - Mexico City
"Magnificent guitarist, an overflow crowd gave a resounding ovation for the
-- La Estrella De Panama
"Radford's performance was a roaring success. The concert drew a record
breaking crowd which overflowed into the balconies and corridors. This gringo
Flamenco artist, in spite of the prejudice regarding his nationality (a gringo
playing Flamenco?), handles this art form indeed quite brilliantly and his
virtuosity at the highest degree of consecration. We had a marvelous
experience listening to this Flamenco artist who, as the Gypsies say,
expresses much duende in his ability to summon forth from the instrument all
of the possibilities it is capable of, and to weave the spell which Flamenco
evokes, by its great power to captivate the audience."
-- La Hora - Guatemala
"It's a special kind of music - Flamenco - and the guitar is a special kind of
instrument, at least in the hands of Ron Radford. It has taken years for
Radford to master the complex rhythms of Flamenco, but more important than the
timing, he has duende the Spanish equivalent of 'soul'."

"Not only was his concert a tremendous success, but he has given inspiration

-- Momento - Chihuahua, Mexico
"Ronald Radford's Flamenco guitar concert was a resounding success. The
overflow crowd was completely delighted with Radford's masterly performance of
Spanish music, particularly Andalucía. A North American artist, a Japanese
guitar, some Spanish selections: with these extraordinary elements admirably
blended, the atmosphere of the concert hall became flamenco, as it rarely
does, and the emotion reached a climax. The joy of the audience welled forth
in repeated Oles, climbing higher and higher in crescendo."
-- Tribuna De Monterrey - Monterrey, Mexico
"Ronald Radford, North American guitarist, presented a concert of Flamenco
music last Friday in the auditorium of the Institute Guatemalteco Americano
before an overflowing throng who gave ovation after ovation for his brilliant
-- Crónica Grafica - Guatemala
"One expects that a Flamenco recital would be given by an Andalucía, or at
least a Spaniard. But when it is done by a North American, and he presents it
as if he were a native of Andalucía, one is surprised! Ronald Radford
surprised us with his masterly interpretations."
-- El Sol De Mexico - Mexico City
"Ronald Radford presented a magnificent concert Wednesday evening under the
auspices of the Residencia Universitaria Pan Americana and the United States
Embassy. He was given a prolonged ovation."
-- Novedades, Mexico City
"Ronald Radford delighted the public with a brilliant performance. His
naturalness, his sensitivity of execution and his full identification with the
instrument, drew from his guitar fiery, deep, sweet and caressing melodies,
conveying these feelings to those who had the opportunity to hear him."
-- El Heraldo, Chihuahua, Mexico
