Read some of his reviews:

"Displays technical brilliance and mastery of genres with an admirable absence of ostentation. Mathiske is the finest all-round guitarist this country has produced"- Tony Hillier, The Australian

"The notes explode from both hands leaving you to wonder if there is another Mathiske in the wings. By the time he had added the didgeridoo and wowed us with outrageous harmonics from far flung corners of his guitar, we were all his." The Scotsman Edinburgh Festival
