Zsombor is, in my opinion, one of the greatest talents on guitar scene in 21 Century. He is a true artist, that has it all: sensitivity, perfect technique and an incredible knowledge.

Lukasz Kuropaczewski

Zsombor Sidoo is one of the most exciting musicians I have ever heard on classical guitar. His deep way to make music, elegant, cultured, never affected and always looking for the most profound message and beauty, is something unique to me. A musician with the ability to grasp every minimum detail and nuance in every work, from the Renaissance to the contemporaries. A sublime artist! An authentic virtuoso of music!

Paolo Pegoraro

 Zsombor Sidoo's interpretation of music spanning from Bach to Carter reveals an exceptional sincerity, which comes as a result of a very deep understanding of every element of the music. Sidoo's performance is not only exceptionally well-informed but also well-felt and therefore well-delivered to a degree that I did know was possible on the guitar. He's certainly one of the most outstanding guitarists of our time.
