 Classical Guitar Magazine review

«…Petar Culic gave one of the main evening recitals, at a venue that backed onto the Cetina River which feeds into the Adriatic at the port of Omis. A unifying feature of the Croatian guitarists press quotes is a certain tendency towards comments on his stage demeanor. This might not appear to be worthy of note at first, after all its a critics prerogative to offer something in the way of a performers public persona, but those who have encountered Culic in person will have an idea of what this really means. The importance of such behaviour should not be underestimated since many fine players ignore this aspect of their performance to the detriment of their career. What perhaps assisted Culic on this occasion though was the home crowd who had come to hear him, evidence for which could be found in his seven encores. The Koblenz Guitar Academy graduate performed a programme of Sor, Ponce and Giuliani in addition to Henzes Drei tentos and Culics own work M: a title invented by the composer purely to create intrigue in the audience. The high viewing totals for M on You Tube suggest tha Culic was on to something with this idea…»
