By any stretch of the imagination, this (Crow) is a major work, featuring the guitar. Hear it if you can, better still try to program it if you have an opportunity, the rewards are great for all concerned.
Classical Guitar, G.B., Oct. 2000

His piece (Sonata Fantasia) is composed of the most diverse elements; Bogdanovic casts new substance into baroque or romantic molds. He combines jazz and African rhythm with pentatonicism and elements of Indian music. He takes advantage of percussive effects. He uses technical tricks known to electric guitar players. His biting harmonies frequently clash to the breaking point. This buoyant and confounding sonata emerges from compositional quarry and forms a balanced whole when musicians like Gruber and Maklar are at work. The two artists accompanied their audience through the mysteriously shining piece like experienced navigators and presented the sonata with sharp contrasts; an interpretation full of poetry, pep and extremes.

Bogdanovic's playing simply acts as a vehicle for his luminous, multicultural compositions. But what playing! Wielding a solo classical guitar, Dusan handles tricky polymeters, Balkan melodies, startling counterpoint, and oud- inspired improvised lines with nuance and sinewy grace. The depth of ideas and clarity of his playing borders on spooky. If you love guitar, you must investigate this jewel.
Guitar Player, USA, 1996

Dusan Bogdanovic continues to prove himself to be one of the true originals of the guitar. His unique vision is born of his trans- Atlantic experiences seasoned with a complete mastery of ethnic folk, jazz & classical traditions, making this music rich in complexity and meaning. He has much to say, handling the large sonata structures as effortlessly as the slight miniature Secrets, and he does so with authority, wit and humor. To enter his world is to know delight, and this new collection is a veritable treasure chest, brimming with rare and exotic jewels: don't miss it.
