June/July 2009

Semiramide in the Dutch media:

Dagblad Trouw, 4 augustus (interview):
Real Belcanto on gut strings. With his cd Elias shows us that there is interesting repertoire waiting for guitarists to be played.
Elias: ‘This Guadagnini guitar is much more singing than a modern guitar’ ‘As a guitarist you should think beyond the notes that are written’

‘a Five stars CD’ Nederlands Dagblad, July 31st

‘intelligent and multi-layered’ De Telegraaf, July 18th

‘Including all his ornamentations Elias is not inferior to any opera diva’ Trouw, June 13th

The past months Semiramide has been broadcasted regularly on Dutch national radio.
