Classical Guitar Magazine
Listening to this program of original works by Mikhail Sytchev one hears the influence of Nikita Koshkin in much of his writings. The pieces are packed with drama,
humor, aggression, passion and impressionism and without exception, are all very well composed and interesting. Particularly entertaining are the five descriptive scenes for children, which with graphic titles such as Pony Step, Acrobats, Sorceress, Harlequin and Troubadour's Song create engaging musical imagery.
Throughout, Sytchev plays with extraordinary flair and musicality and this recording certainly whets thr appetite for hearing more of this very good composer-guitarist.
