These are just a few example of what listeners have said . I can not thank people enough for their love. What else can a musician ask for in life, other than the appreciation of listeners. As Angelo Gilardino once put it, a listener is an essential part of the creation of the music. That is so true. Thanks for your listening.

"Nice singing you were very good." George Duke

"The interpretation is very nice, I like it very much". Pepe Romero

Your voice is very nice. Mark B Lay

Such artistic power – the way you play the guitar, you tell a story and each string is a word, a syllable, so you construct the whole thing. In this day and age how many guitarists do that? Martin Engler

Master of guitar. Remo S.

From the perspective of a drummer: "You’re a real good guitar player because your timing is stable." It's that Persian thing!

Played at the lake for about 3.5 hours non-stop. Started by saying this is a Sunday Evening tribute to the beatles - and a couple turned around and sat - others too stoped by and it was a blast. Hands were really tired. A lady danced for a long time. Parents stopped by with kids.... X asked: where are you from? "planet earth". Hansheinrich Graf said: "You come from the earth but your voice is from the heaven". later he said: "Best Singer of Zurich"...

Dear Reza,

I would like to thank you for the beautiful music on
the train it really helped me. Today was a little bit
of a hard day for me. I just started work in a new
place and a patient of mine died where I used to work.
I really knew her well, she was more like a family
member too me than a patient. If I could repay you the
joy that you gave me I would like to try. I would
invite you to lunch if you want to when you're around
here again. If you would like to just tell me. I'll
take some time.

Yours Truly,



Just now (May 6, 1999) the lady on the train said: "Thanks for the good music and good luck".

There's been many remarks like this - all the time. Sometimes people are so kind that it makes me cry. For example, the train is empty, but they come sit next to the guitarist, and before leaving make kind remarks. I never ask for money. It's kind enough of them to listen and not complain. I just practice.

Once a lady in Germany, before leaving the train said: check your glove. I wondered, what?! Later on, I discovered a 10 mark bill in my glove.

Once in Vienna I was riding the tram and not even playing guitar - just carrying it. I felt a hand come over my shoulders. Turned my head and noticed the lady behind me is giving a 100 Schilling note!

I never ask for money when I am practicing in trains. Once in Switzerland a guy gave me 5 Francs as he was getting off the train saying: "Thank you for the music. When I got on the train I was stressed. Now I am relaxed."

A man at Badenfahrt gave me a 100 Franc tip!

Your words and music definetly speak to me.  -- Gillian

u do fine since u sing from ur heart!:)

You’re an artistic powerhouse.

I have your CD playing now and like it very much.  When we spoke on the phone, I didn't realise you had a professional CD like that!  Both my wife and I are learning guitar at the moment but much to my distress, she is learning much faster than I am.  It's not good for the in-family competitiveness!   :-)

Many thanks for sending it to me, and congratulations on producing it,

you should feel very proud of your achievement.

Best regards

guitarist extraordinaire - Felix v. c.

June 99 - I love to play for people and share peace through music. In Switzerland many parents give money to their children to give to artists. It is part of the culture (as is in other European countries as well). The children learn to respect and appreciate arts from a very early age. Last saturday a father told her little daughter - maybe age 5 or 6: "listen, that is good music" and gave her a franc to give to the guitarist. And another franc again. A little boy did not know how to drop the money on the guitar case - so he handed the coins one by one to the guitarist. Old people also give a lot. 2, 13 year old cousins dropped 5 fc coin! Another man, gave a handful of change.

You sing very beautiful - sing - sing - sing. It's fantastic. (Claudine from Paris)

Funny, you’ve been popping into my mind quite a bit over the last few weeks.  I’ve heard a lot of Beatles songs on the radio and they’ll always remind me of your playing the guitar and singing them on the ferry ride back to Greece (from Mykonos if I remember correctly) in 2005.  Not sure if you remember me or my sister, or if I thanked you before, but thanks for making that ferry ride so memorable.  All the very best.

It's very good - you don't have to be sorry - it's very good. Ramon in train

It was great to have you at our wedding, and thank you for sharing your music with us. Hope to see you soon again. Amin + Gaye.

"Thank you very much. Really appreciate it." man on plane in colorado about the music.

“my dad thinks you’re really talented…and he’s a really good judge…” others played violin etc but be said nothing. Jackie G.

You have a very beautiful voice - very nice. P. Filliez

"As you did a very good job yesterday we decided to ask you, wheter you would like to come for some songs." -Peter B.

I listen to your performance with a lot of interest because you have something to say that's original. You are the musician - an artist. You didn't enter the music academy, the system, through the centre (front) door. You are a bit outside. This is of course, a disadvantage to many viewpoints. On the other side it gives your performance a certain grade of freshness which is so difficult to be found in the academic pupils. Play what you like. At this epoque of your life, you are able to express yourself. Try the music which is as close as possible to this something which you have got inside.   (Angelo Gilardino - Spring 97 - Vercelli, Italy)

Thank you very much for the music. (girl who got off the train)

I enjoyed listening to you. Bruno R.

Nice singing! You have a beautiful voice. Annemarie T.

I heard you were fantastic...

I’ve heard your music. It’s great. You’re good. Man, I can’t believe it. I couldn’t do that. That’s awesome. Derek F’s mother.

I HEARD GOOd things about you(r music). denise's husband (gh)

I have a strong conviction that his music should be heard by more music lovers. John N

you play beautiful – ojai lady

I can imagine how good you must feel to play! not just that, but you're someone who really enjoys playing it, and you do so i feel from the deepest part of your being!  and when you play from that part it's really something,  don't you think? S.reddy

let me share something with you. iam not trying to flatter you though... this was in my earlier apartment. iit was to your "reza in friendship" that i was listening to. it was dark and another world opened up! for a while we were taken to another world. amazing! but true.  some music does that to me. it opens my third eye! like last night i was listening to this relaxation music which always stimulates and my third eye( and i have no words to say what is seen! it's never something bad or ugly and fearful! not even once!  iam grateful for that!) you hear many musicians play but only few can transport you inot a completely another dimension! how amazing! but you're someone who has that gift. S reddy

Hi Reza! funny to see you at least on screen - and amazing how you play and sing (and all by memory)!

I enjoy listening to your music. It’s calmness is soothing. Guitar is calmer than all other instruments. H. Zamani


Reza jun,

I'm just writing to tell you how much I enjoyed your beatles improve video on youtube... I taught it was amazing in showing your limitless-artistic-versatility.

It’s nice, it’s beautiful, sing [more]. Manuela.

Dear Reza

Checked out your site and listened to some sample music. I love your music and renaissance thinking - the Universe cut us from the same cloth - but my music is the silence in the stars.

a great musician – desiree

I am reminded how beutifully you played at JIm's retirement Party and how truly ungracious I was to you.  I never ever properly thanked you for the wonderful music you provided and gave as a gift to all who attended.

Much affection and even greater apprection for your masterful musical gifts.

Woman stopped and showed the guitar player to her 2 kids - one in stroller and complemented one. She had to be European. In fact she was from Slovenia. She was letting her kid watch this musician, thus giving music, art, importance. David: in America they’d say: some loser guy playing the guitar on the sidewalk.

"I like your guitar playing very much". - Maarten Q.

" I love the feeling of your guitar playing. - it's very powerful. Your music is very special. It has a lovely quality and a lot of energy and feeling. There's a beauty which surfaces from the music.

"You play extremely well" - Jackie M.

The guests wrote: The Fountainebleau is a wonderful place to be. In the morning we had French Toast, fruit & coffee. Serenaded by Reza with classical guitar. Twenty years of experience, he’s going to go far. Up&down the wine trail, we bought much booze. So many great wines, you really can’t lose. Back to the Fountainebleau, where we felt at home, John & Terri were great, so I wrote this poem. 4-21-00-4-23-00 S&C

“I thought that was the radio” (lady in Manchester as I passed by singing).

Old man got up and greeted that it was excellent.
Planet song was a hit. They clapped for it more than any other song.

You have a nice singing voice.

I like you a lot.

Sehr Schoene

What I love about playing for people is: 1) it makes them happy 2) it spreads peace, love, and good vibrations 3) it relaxes them 4) it inspires them to pick that old instrument up again or to learn an instrument 5) it exposes possibilities of the guitar that many people are not aware of, etc. etc.

Eckart W. wrote (June 99):
Last evening Michel came visiting-I just was back from Vienna.You know,he is the friendly chap who understands no English,but felt quite sympathetic to you at the concert.He told me afterwards,that this event stimulated him to know more about Persian culture.

Late evening train home, lady's kind remark and smile gave a last minute boost to an incredibly good day. A man was wistling Romance as we got off. He had heard it on train's second floor and liked it.

Only a couple of times in the last 5 years someone has complained about the music in the train - which I respect and stop - but even in those cases other people who are sitting around told the person or the conductor, almost in a strong way, that "we like it, it is not disturbing"!!

"I like your music and I would be very proud if I could sing or play guitar like you." - Mirjam F. (1000th Swiss contact)

Walked into his shop - my CD was playing... He told his friend: "Reza is one of the best guitarists of Iran..."

You are really good at the guitar. It sounds really good.... Bill D.

Is it the cd playing? No it’s reza. (matt scz)

Last night everybody here bought one’s cd including a beautiful lawyer. Tonight met E who bought the CD – a crab fisherman in Alaska – he thought it was the CD playing – and loves the guitar – he has read AWAKENING OF INTELLIGENCE – a great Krishnamurti book he found here in the library. Robin had heard of Ray Bradbury and does read a page of a book to know if she’ll fall in love with it (TOTT).

[lg] Got a ton of complements for last night. Things along the lines of “everybody loved you; You were great last night; You were excellent; You enlivened the crowd, as usual; Very nice, we really appreciate it. You were incredible. When they said singalong, I thought it’d be an amateur playing some chords, I was shocked at your performance.”

That's is a great ideal to do a classical tribute to the Beatles songs !!! Reza you are talented and you make great music. The nurse at the court house still listen to your music she loves it. You should do a entire CD tribute to the Beatles, i think it would do great.

Dear Reza: Thank you - it was a pleasure to hear you play in the very busy airport of Marrakech! You seem to be a very centered person and I admire this.
I just had a look at your website and I am impressed about your writings. I noticed that we have something alike: our passions are very deep and we both listen more closely to our spiritual being…  It is good to know that there are equal thinkers out there. Thank you for this.  Warm Regards,

I noticed youtube recommended me a video of you on an Iranian program singing a couple songs (one about littering and a Beatles song).  Very wonderful voice!!!!

Not only listen, but also see how it’s performed.

It’s really personal. You build a bridge to people who are listening, and if the bridge is built, everything is easy.

We enjoyed it, it was great.  I’ll write a letter because its true, not to do you a favor, but because I’m convinced its true (Francois)

"do you live on Grenzstr? I've heard you sing as you walk pass my room. Nice."

- group of 8, 14 year old girls surrounded me in the train and we sang together....then an older gentleman complemented the music too.....

You're right, it is. Last night I got surrounded by 8, 14 year old girls in the train - and boy, the music was as energetic as you can imagin this group being. And a lady the other night changed her from the other end of the wagon to next to me "I wanted to know who it was... it sounded like something special". And it was a delight getting complements on Giuliani Opus 15, in the bus, from 2, 16 year old twins with fuzzy Reggea hats!

We are obviously much looking forward to listening to your forthcoming CD... I think you have worked hard and deserve a roaring success with your CD. The market is waiting for the launch of your product...! HUM

Train vendor: "you have nice fingers."

.... you  have a wonderful voice.  (cindi MN)

Girl on tube put 50p on guitar case and said that was lovely (I wasn’t busking). Another: “beautiful”. Music is a great way of bringing minds together – and add a good spirit in that tense tube…

Your guitar made the trip - train rider in CT.

“Good voice” man said in Boston hotel.

"Schone musik"

15nov99 - People clapped in the train.


I am practically always practicing guitar in the trains - never for money. With the exception of one American lady, a grouchy old man, and an unhappy fur-coat wearing old arrogant woman in first-class, Europeans never seem to mind the guitar playing in the trains. In fact they often like it very much and show that by kind words and gestures. Sometimes their level of appreciation makes me cry. Riding on the tram one day with my guitar in its case, a hand came across my shoulder - it was a 100 Shilling note offered by a music lover. A couple of days ago, a lady in the train told me in broken English: "don´t lose your right glove". There was a certain weight to her statement which made me wonder for a second: "what kind of universal sign could that be?". Later I found a 10 Mark note in my glove! Recently, a couple took a seat next to me on an empty train, and then made such a kind remark that it made me cry of joy. What else can an artist ask for? A man who did not look well-off himself, the other night in a tram tapped on my shoulder and gave me 2 francs - I had just been strumming the chords to "With A little help from my friends". On other occasions I have played for money but I am telling these stories to demonstrate the greatness of the European culture and appreciation for arts and artists.

The train conductors sometimes do not even check my ticket while I am playing and just pass by with a smile, or give me a better place. On one or two occasions when the train conductor asked me not to play, other people argued with him that they like it.

- Almost everyone complemented the music as they got off the train.... Have heard a lot of this last few days: Schone musik......Schone melody... and exchange of love with a simple smile and look.....
"The bad luck on the train last thursday was also a good luck: it made me meet you and listen to your beautiful guitar playing!" Dr. Bettina V.

- "beautiful, wonderful, simple and sweet" - E.Gassmann

It was a pleasure listening to you. Eve C.

Another very pleasant evening was Reza’s classical guitar recital. Alan r.

29 Sep 2006  -  Old grumpy man on the tram said: it is forbidden to play the guitar on trams. The driver jumped after hearing this: "no it is not", she argued with the man, and asked me to continue to play. She was so kind and afterwards we exchanged nice greetings.

it’s god you’re singing – I can keep my mind in climbing more. [indian lady in saanenland]

It sounds nice - Lady in park (UK).

It sounds beautiful - Regula Gl. (train)

You are beautiful - your music is beautiful. Girl in Film Festival.

I just had to let you know that the music was great, it's been my dream/prayer all my life to meet a man with a guitar who's just there for me, and last night was a gift!  -  Thanks a lot. F.R.

Half hour before Zurich went downstairs to charge up my laptop and got the guitar out and played. Swiss-Germans are particularly music loving. There were 2 families there with little kids and a lady and her child. As I began the Grand Overure, the kids heads popped out, some stood watching, one mother stood and rocked her baby to it. All 3 families bought my CD (at "train special" price). One man asked where I studied and said in broken English : what you do is high school - is excellent.


Late night in bus station in Baden 2 young guys and young girl put their money together and dropped 5 Francs and a gum in my guitar case which happened to be open. This is Switzerland for you!

I like your playing -- Julio!

I was quite impressed with your energy and forthrightness as an artist those few months ago when we met in Ojai—exuberantly promoting your show that night. I am sorry I missed the show as I am sure you are a gifted artist and interpreter of the Beatles work, too. Alden

Jeff Carter:  Barrueco mentioned something a friend of his once said, that we as performers "leave our emotional clothes backstage", in essence baring our naked soul to our audience.

Charming music; very attractive. -- Person in Gstaad

thank you for the wonderful music. it was a great event........

Your voice is very good - really nice.

I am still dazzled by you remembering all the music and songs that you played. You have quite an encyclopedic brain. Congratulations

Plenty of nice material and you pulled it off very well.  You did a very nice job.

It was a wonderful concert, we enjoed it very much, sorry that we had to leave early.

That was the most fun I had in a long time. I enjoyed it so much. And it was the right balance - starting with classical guitar put me in the right mood.

You pulled it off very well.

Last night sold 2 cd's on the way home. The second lady paid 10 francs more than I asked for! "I never met a neighbour playing guitar on the train! It was so nice to hear the music - I was a bit tired but I woke up. AF
Was that you playing? It was beeeeeeeaaaaaautiful - it sounded classical. American Eastern Indian man man on train.
What do you like to hear? she said: "renaissance and baroque" ! Thanks for the concert. Gabi (zug)

I like your music, just like Andre Segovia! Maryam W.

So, it was also nice to meet you. And you can really good play guitar! Compliment! Best regards, Melanie (the girl with the red hairs)

It's beautiful, pleasure for us to listen (gentleman on train).

Schone music - old lady Baden

“I got on this train because I saw the guitarist. (Berhard about the conductor)”

I could listen for hours. K. Morgenthaler

At the airport, African-America woman passed by: "sound good" - I was surprised she even heard me sing!

Tom gave a good clap after La Catedral "very good".

Heard many many complements at the performance in Tehran.

Yes, thanks to you for that nice music, which made working easy. We should have musicians more often at the airport! Dina

Thank you for the music and the meal. L. Rizzo

You have a sweet voice - Generous gentleman at the park..  Another one handed old gentleman was complementary too. John, a musician said: that's fantastic - you're a real musician...

You are very talented. (another) Reza's girlfriend.

It's so unusual to travel early morning in the train and hear music - it's beautiful. Margaritta

Reza I will come back to you and will also recommend you to friends who also
enjoy music with quality and not the standard "bullshit" you hear from some
one man show's who only insert a CD in the keyboard and then are busy enough
to press the right buttons more or less to the rythm of the play back song.
My best regards

It's lovely. I can listen to it for hours. Hamid M.

To Reza - a fellow traveller when it comes to quieting the world to hear the "good" sound. Arline Bronzaft, PhD
you are putting so much good out to the world, with your music and writing and website and performances!     lisa  w.

Woman in train complemented one's singing as we were getting off. It's nice to sing again.......

Met American family from Texas who bought the CD in the train and said the music was lovely.

Performed at the gathering in CT - got lots of complements - "very nice playing" - "I've never heard such good guitar"...

We passed by a outdoor party - the band finished as we got there - "go play"... why not?.... they let me play - played Rumores, Romance (its magic always captures) and all-my-loving - at least a few people who knew the song appreciated it - got couple big applauds anyway.

Played guitar in Washington Metro - one man clapped silently - a woman: good music (Barrios).

Good music - Didier (France 8/01)

Very good player - John (Canada 8/01)

Good breakfast music - Gisele B.
Anyway, I would like to support you as good as I can as I feel from you music and from your radiant face, i.e. from the Physiognomy, that you are a real good man, sincere in your motives and full of love for men.   Werner M.





Still rockin' out the Beatles tunes Reza?   I was just jammin' with a good
friend the other day.  It's been a long time, though.  He's only played
Guitar for only about a year now..but it was still pretty cool.   Just wish
the screaming hordes of IHS teenage girls were there... Pete M.

I never thought I'd hear a concert in the train. I will start again when I get back - I will start immediately. Thanks for the concert. Spanish Lady on the train.


after our meeting in the train you brought us long chain of happy events - I met Ahmad and we got married in Milano - our wedding is in Lugano  - my dream from childhood was to bring peace in the world - maybe together [with husband] we can bring peace. u r the start - i'm sure - you remember i came into train and you were playing gutiar - i began to cry - I had a very hard past - please please please you must play at my party...


It was nice- Blond getting off the train.

Sehr Schone - Karin N.

Beautiful - Delicate - You're mastering your instrument/. Gentleman in Swiss train

Relaxing. (passenger)

Now i know why you travel around with that guitar - it's brilliant - playing songs people can relate to - it must give you so much joy. Peter W.

“You play very nice” girl in Laundromat.

The music was perfect - it created a really good atmosphere. Johan M.

You play very well. You sing very well too. Sylvie C.


Shouldn't have asked the platform attendant who was yaking with a couple about his daughter with his head stuck in the Tube "how long does it take to Wimbeldon". '50 minutes - I hope you're not going to play that (guitar) the whole way.' "you're hoping that I do play or not?" 'not'. Why not? 'people may not like it!' I've ben doing this for 6 years and it's usually the people who tell the occasional complaining conductor - but that's in other countries. 'I've seen a guy take pliers and cut strings off a guitarist' It depends on the music - if you're playing Bach or Mozart it's diff than some punk stuff. [he left]

A few stops later a guy sat in front of me and flashed his card. "You didn't have to show your card - which I didn't see what it was - if you asked me not to play that's be enough". 'I'm a railroad inspector.' Minutes later "Why, did you not like the music?" - other people may not like it. "Don't you think others would say something if they didn't?" [guy next to him gave agreement smirk]. 'it's the rule - no instruments played' - which rule? 'main office'... [end of story] I gave my seat to 2 old ladies - he also got up and I ended up on his seat.


You have an amazing ability to cheer people up. Those 3 people were such stoney-faces, seemed so miserable and upset, and you slowly softened their faces up. Camilla

It was a pleasure listening to you. Doung (VP)
Old SwissGerman man on train told his wife: It's nice to have music on the train. She: ya, it's nice.
