'I listened to your CD (Two Worlds) with great pleasure...I really liked it. You are good' - Milos Forman, Academy Awards winning film director (Amadeus, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, etc.) U.S.A, 1999

Listening to his music, the most exciting aspect is its freshness...highly melodic and far from predictable, his compositional style is modern and reflects myriad influences. -Dita Zizi, Muse Magazine, Australia, 1996

The Passing of the Black Star: ''It's a very beautiful piece. It's got so much change, and variety, and dynamics, and energy and atmosphere. He's done an incredibly good job of including all those references to Bowie's last album."
Upbeat with Eva Radich, Radio New Zealand

"My Canberra" (Symphony No. 2) ...with its edgy harmonies, constantly changing rhythms, lush accessible melodies and rich warm orchestrations, proved to be a great showcase for the orchestra... - Canberra Critics Circle, 2013

Greetings once again, Mr. Budos. Saluting you from Zacatecas city, México, i would like to tell you that four years after listening to "The Passing Of A Black Star" i realize i wouldn't have become a classical guitarist if i had not heard this piece. It inspired me in so many different ways, and the timbre of the guitar is even "theatrical" to my ears, so i thank you deeply and hugely, the inspiration you gave me and that started my career as a classical guitarist. (4 years since i started, what a coincidence, hehe)
Greetings, take care

Hi Javier,

What a nice message to receive! Thank you.

I am so glad to hear that you are playing classical guitar and that my music inspired you to pick up the instrument. ðŸ'‚ That is wonderful!

Good luck with everything. And let me know if you would like a copy of the score as a reminder of your starting classical guitar.

All the very best.


Thanks on the reply! And thanks, infinite thanks and blessings for this inspiration. I would indeed like a copy of the score, and if it's possible, maybe play it with a quartet here sometime.
