Les Fradkin / Press

“Baroque Rocks!; "The man of a million sounds and King of the Ztar produced a piece of work that is simply revolutionary, creative genius! ‘Baroque Rocks!’ is a proven success that will continue to withstand the test of time."”

"Whether he plays more in the classical or the electronic genres, Fradkin makes a strong case for himself as the Yngwie Malmsteen of MIDI. Might this supreme practitioner be due for a renewed notoriety?"

"Canon In D"- Best Classical Recording 2014 Indie Music Channel Awards

"Renowned MIDI guitarist Les Fradkin continues to WOW the critics and audience by bringing innovative music-making techniques to the forefront. Les combines classical & progressive rock music to make up one uniquely original, digitally-advanced sound. The KING of MIDI Guitars!"

"Lift Off"- Two words come to mind after a listen to Les Fradkin's music: Original Genius. One of the most original pieces of music that I have heard in a really long time.

“Suite for Ztar and Orchestra in G Minor is just the latest evidence of the exceptional creativity of prolific musician Les Fradkin. Les has not only mastered the Starr Labs Ztar; he has taken the instrument to previously uncharted regions of the musical universe.”

“I first learned of you from the Steve Vai song "Liberty" which I thought you did a fantastic job with. But Orbiter ROCKS! This is one of those songs that's so great you immediately think you've heard it a million times before. Great job!”

"One Link Between Them"- Fradkin has sequenced and shredded his way into 2008 with one of the most adventurous digital recordings we’ve heard in a while. Get your synth freak on and lift off with Les Fradkin!

"Bloody Brilliant!"

“To see the Ztar at its absolute best, you have to check out the work of Les Fradkin on YouTube.”

“I digg your vids on YouTube...you ARE THE ZTAR.”

“Built around the genius of guitarist Les Fradkin. Fradkin is a guitarist of the first order. Make no mistake - Fradkin could show Joe Satriani or Eric Johnson a thing or two!”

“One of the great guitarists of our time!”

"Canon In D"- This would blow Pachelbel's mind. Les has created a complete orchestral arrangement with his Ztar. Very cool.

"While My Guitar Only Plays"- I must proclaim that this is the BEST instrumental Beatle song CD ever produced!!!!

"Canon In D"- Incredible - of all the renditions of this piece this has to be the best

"Baroque Rocks!"- Fradkin's expertise on the Starr Labs Ztar Midi Guitar, is simply brilliant with an added dash of amazing. I would consider this one of the best classical homages done by a rocker.

"His Starr Labs 'Ztar' now has become part of a new peak in Les' personal history. At the same time a culmination of musical innovation."

“Guitar virtuoso extraordinaire! Les can easily "make a guitar speak" and then some-simply brilliant.”

“Les, you have a unique approach as well: in your hands the Ztar becomes its own instrument. Very impressive work...”

“The big, rocking guitar beat of Les Fradkin is essential listening for fans of symphonic rock instrumental sounds.”
