"The music of Andersen is like magic, almost metaphysical"  "Apparently Henrik Andersen can play music on anything"  "Andersen speaks more musical dialects than most musicians can ever dream of, and he does it in a way that makes it his own personal statement, He is by all means a true master musician"

REVIEW

"A completely different image from Henrik Andersen. This is one of the most famous fusion guitarists. In Kaluga, he performed something dawn, a thirsty flight, similar to the old legends alternating with a battle cry!

It sounded strong and large, like a single canvas, on which the imperturbable Andersen embroidered on the strings an intricate landscape.

How, passionate, impetuous and ardent is Denmark!

How much purity, power and love!

And in the end - a unique, slightly guilty smile Henrik"
