About the album ‘Around Barrios’ from 2013 Gitarre und Laute wrote: Enno Voorhorst has once again shown his class - not by bragging with virtuosity but by musical persuasion! And also his latest album with Bach- Pärt-Desprez received outstanding critics. According to Classical Guitar this fabulous album deserves to be in everyone’s collections.
