LA MÍSTICA DE SONIDOS ETERNOS

By Critics, Critics chamber music

Works by Takemitsu and  Messiaen.

GRANADA, MANUEL DE FALLA AUDITORIUM

José Antonio Cantón│Scherzo Magazine│January 2021

[…] The performance of this instrumental quartet must be considered as a true artistic event… José Luis Estellés entered fully into action in the Abîme des oiseaux, suspending the sound of his clarinet in space… thus achieving one of the most astonishing moments of the concert, which left a feeling of total dissolution of time, all seasoned by the appearance of intervals that curiously pointed to some modulations of the overwhelming melopea of the third act of Tristan invented by Wagner for the English horn.

[…] Los intérpretes muestran un trabajo lleno de transparencia, equilibrio de voces y cohesión. Podemos destacar momentos de gran belleza como el solo de clarinete que ofrece José Luís Estellés con un fiato y un sonido siempre sensual -Abime des Oiseaux -con unos crescendos que no parecen tener fin- y que son servidos con verdadera poesía.
