“Classical guitarist Jonathan Prag is a Fringe stalwart, and his solo recital feels like a cool breeze of sanity amid the Edinburgh mayhem. Prag … delivers a wide-ranging programme from O'Carolan through to Nikita Koshkin. But it's the quiet authority with which he plays and his natural unforced musicality, that mark his show out. He …picks out voices sensitively in a rippling Bach Fugue and Allegro. His command of tone colour is impressive in Barrios's 'La Catedral', especially a beautifully fluid transition into ringing harmonics… It’s Koshkin’s fiery ‘Usher Waltz’ (is) most impressive, slowly fracturing and disintegrating a piquant waltz tune … and drawing Prag’s most extrovert performance… there’s no doubting his technical dexterity nor his intense focus, and he has an easy, natural way of talking to his audience... Prag offers something quite special.”
