"John combines so many gifts: extraordinary levels of musicianship, composition, production and creativity. But perhaps even more uncanny is his ability to climb into a film and the director’s head. I hope to continue working with John for a long time to come. Salut."
"John Koutselinis is a rare precious gem in terms of scoring for storytelling. I'm super honored to have had the opportunity of working with such a remarkable composer and artist"
"I can't thank John Koutselinis enough for his amazing contribution to The Ballroom Dance Spell 's soundtrack and the energy it brought"..."Composing music for a choreography is quite tricky and the result is incredible."
"John is a master of his craft. He is capable of creating a huge cinematic score with a full orchestra yet at the same time
can also compose the subtlest of melodies and ballads. He is well trained as a classical musician yet relevant and contemporary.
John did the most amazing score for Centurion Resurrection and can't wait to work with him again"
Richard Bazley, Director
"Working with John was an honour. He is an extremely talented composer, with the ability to grasp exactly what is needed on a project, and also has the ability to execute specifically what is needed on time, and within budget. I would welcome the chance to work with him again"
Danny Wilson, Director
"Working with so many great actors for 'Katherine of Alexandria' such as Peter O' Toole, Steven Berkoff, Edward Fox, Joss Ackland and many more, I knew that John would bring a fresh, and yet classical theme to the picture. He is the easiest composer I have ever worked with, possessing no ego, and being a great communicator but most of all, the score on Katherine is stunning and it speaks for itself."
Michael Redwood, Director
"A richly thematic and sweepingly gorgeous work."
The Great Alaskan Race - OST Review by Soundtrack Universe
...I've had him compose for my web series/film "We Are Angels", each episode consisting of different themes and each time
he has been able to capture an epic quality needed in the story being told. His themes are emotionally complex
He has the ability to perform at the highest level you need or be able to tone things down and give things heart.
The best quality he has is he's very personable.
Though we've only spoken on the phone once, he living in the U.K., me living in the U.S., we got along great.
He actively wants to know where you're coming from as a filmmaker so he can best express it through music.
Music is so important in filmmaking, and to have someone who understands you and your project is invaluable.
John has definitely taken my project to the next level."
Aaron Garcia, Director

last minute changes to reels very well!"
