Using nails rather than fingertips is just one of the complications of Khan's approach to the notoriously challenging Indo-Persian instrument. Yet his performance conveyed ease and grace, not difficulty. Widely considered to be the greatest sarodist active today, Khan showed immense versatility as well as subtlety.

Times, 2006 
(Carnegie Hall 
"He gave each melodic phrase an individual character with an expert use of dynamics. And in the improvisations, he was creating his own original shapes. He placed important notes between beats; he used trembling-pitch ornamentation, but not too much; his phrases began mildly, became distended, and dove into silence. He played some very fast phrases but projected gently; he didn’t overwhelm you with power."
Magazine, 2005
"The greatest virtuoso of the Sarod, in my opinion, the best of his generation."

"Life affirming playing. An artist at the peak of his career.."
The Guardian, London 2005
"It was like watching an Indian classical answer to Eric Clapton and Ginger Baker crashing through their favourite Robert Johnson covers at the Cream revival earlier this month. Amjad Ali Khan may be a master of the sarod rather than the guitar,but once he had built up to the crescendo of his solo set - improvising furiously around the melody line with repeated, rapid-fire playing and then letting his equally frantic tabla player take over - it was easy to see why great Indian music can be as exciting as classic blues and rock."

The Herald, UK (Edinburgh Festival, 2002)
“Amjad Ali Khan, who, for many, is god-like in his dramatic powers on the Sarod, delivered his music with the emotional voltage of the blues, and a flexible instrument line that was almost vocal in its expressiveness…….”

The Times, London 2001
