“…Fresh, diverse, technically accurate, complex and fun; all in unison, these qualities are the basis of the Ecos Guitar Quartet’s proposal…” Written by Patricia Slukich in the “Estilo”, section of the Los Andes, newspaper, Mendoza, Argentina (2007).
“…The Ecos Quartet has a wide and entertaining repertoire with a great display of technical and melodic talents…”, by Gema Gal-lardo, section “Shows”, Diario Uno, newspaper, Mendoza, Ar-gentina (2011).
Poker de Ases” CGE’s debut CD: “…This multiplicity of rhythms manages to amalgamate in the guitars of Ecos, whose arrange-ments allow a certain ‘tension’ to be maintained throughout the album, so that listening to it is a delight of coming and going be-tween American accents. The 24 strings unite and dissociate in games and dialogues that recreate the original landscapes of the compositions, but with an intimate air, typical of the chamber music proposal. Poker de Ases is a great album, and hopefully the experience will be repeated…” by Alejandro Frias, in: El Sol, newspaper, Mendoza, Argentina (2010).
