A shot from my recording a couple of years ago with Magdalena Filipczak of some Piazzolla... here's the Fogel audio...: open.spotify.com/user/114923090/playlist/1dPZoIFD6OJRY0ucX3GI9x ...and some kind words from theArtsdesk.com: “Two movements from Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango sound suitably idiomatic, and they’re beautifully accompanied by guitarist Martin Fogel. He deserves a disc to himself; the veiled intro to “Café 1930” is exquisite.” ... See MoreSee Less

Martin Fogel receives glowing comment in the fantastic review of the album “Essence of Violin”, where he accompanies violinist Magdalena Filipczak:

“Two movements from Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango sound suitably idiomatic, and they’re beautifully accompanied by guitarist Martin Fogel. He deserves a disc to himself; the veiled intro to “Café 1930” is exquisite.”

The latest CD, EQUINOX – Complete Works for solo guitar by Toru Takemitsu – receives great reviews in CD Journal, JAPAN:

“This is a ‘meeting’ between musician and composer – an embodiment of ‘Equinox’ in all its aspects, taking into account the works, the performance, the cultural background and the time and place. This is the complete works for solo guitar by Toru Takemitsu, performed by a Swedish genius. The clear, beautiful sounds of the performance conveys “modernity” as full of intrinsic warmth.”
CD Journal, Japan

…and in Classical Music, UK:

“Swedish guitarist Fogel is an admirable exponent of the accessible music Toru Takemitsu wrote for guitar. He allies rich, smooth colour with crisp phrasing… this collection exudes easy charm”
