Four-hand piano in the Chamber Music cycle
-Diario del Alto Aragón. 8.5.2015-

"... Throughout the whole sonata we appreciate the clear and light articulation of classicism, especially in the first movement and the third ..."

"They followed with the Fantasia D.940 ... in which the phrasing, the character and the interpretation of it drew attention, with a perfect synchronization between both pianists"

"The concert ended with Ma mere l'oye.  These five pieces for children were interpreted with great sensitivity and musical taste. Clearly descriptive, it gave the impression that the interpreters themselves told us five little stories, recreating the atmosphere of the music of Ravel ... "
