“Azabagic’s playing is virtually flawless and his technical facility is a joy to see as well as hear; increasingly I hear him mentioned in the same breath as John Williams, and while such comparisons are invidious, this one is not without merit” Soundboard Magazine, USA He has appeared as a guest performer in such venues as Masters of the Guitar at the Royal Concertgebouw in Netherlands, Radio France in Paris, France, Aix en Provence Festival, France, El Palau de la Musica, Valencia-Spain, Savannah on Stage, USA, and Omni Foundation, USA.
