“He is a formidable classical guitarist [...] much of his compositional output reflects a love of traditional Jewish musics; some of his solo works sound like explorative improvisations, others sound like pristine and carefully crafted compositions [...] The common thread amongst all of this is a virtuosic skill which enables completely authentic communication; when you listen to Bonnet, there’s no mistaking who you are listening to, or what he’s saying to you.”

I think there is in your compositions the same kind of delicacy and “bon gout” as in your playing. Congratulations!
