'Chopin, as interpreted by the guitarist Adam Palma heard like never before with a more modern rhythmic approach as exemplified throughout the recording, is strikingly original!
Chopin in Palma’s vision on guitar is highly unusual in the best sense both sonically and beautiful!  Whoever said Chopin is limited to the piano?
Here Adam Palma takes a courageous leap forward to expand his interpretation with an instrument never before associated with a composer like Chopin!
A dedicated work of passion! Bravo!' - Al Di Meola (legendary guitarist)
 
'Chopin's guitarist!' - Wprost  41/2019 (Poland)

Ultimately, it’s Palma’s ability to elide the written and improvised and back with such elegant virtuosity and evenness of articulation that makes this a very special album indeed.
- 4 stars - Jazzwise, UK  03/2020 

'Palma splendidly read and masterfully played Chopin's pearls' - Gazeta Polska Codziennie 8/10/2019 (Poland)
 
'Check out tracks like our favorite, Mazurka in F Major to hear one true master re-interpreting the writing of another.' - Guitar Techniques, UK, October 2019
 
'...the ingenious arrangements and improvised passages featured here succeed in making Chopin's 19th-century music sound contemporary!' - Guitarist, UK, September 2019
 
'Adam's arrangement and performance of Prelude in C minor give the impression of a song originally written for guitar, which is the final affirmation of the artistic vision of the guitarist with the Polish heart and soul. 
5 stars - Jazz Forum, PL, September 2019
 

'With "Adam Palma Meets Chopin", Poland’s greatest composer, who revolutionized harmonic content and textures for piano, finds the perfect interpreter in guitarist and fellow Pole Palma (who now lives in England). By employing a modern rhythmic approach to these classics, Palma seems to be striving to introduce Chopin to a wider audience. Yet, by stretching the limits of these sprightly yet profound pieces, the guitarist honors the spirit of one of the most daring innovators of the Romantic era.  - Acoustic Guitar, USA no 319, Nov 2019

 
'The album that highlights a new approach to playing Chopin's music, the one on the acoustic guitar played with a plectrum.  A record that makes Chopin a brilliant contemporary composer thanks to Adam Palma's acoustic guitar.'  Chitarra Acustica, Italy, Oct 2019
 
'Absolutely worth listening!'  - Akustik Gittare, Germany, Sep 2019
