Reviews

“Formidable technique…compelling execution” (The Scotsman, May 2016)

“Both Moreno and Temirkanov had a determinedly forthright approach that, despite the work’s fundamental lyricism, emphasised the movement’s sharp edges and emotional intensity. The soloist’s sweet tone also found a perfect partnership in the limpid beauty of the slow movement, with its striking opening pizzicato accompaniment.” (bachtrack, November 2015)

“She has a truly spectacular technique, and it’s allied with an individual voice and approach which mark her out as a very special talent indeed.” (5* Manchester Evening News, November 2014)

“She has the grace of a flamenco dancer, the strength of character of an Andalucian cantaora and the smouldering gaze of one of Almodovar's heroines. Without a doubt Spain has just found a perfect musical ambassador.” (Le Figaro, February 2014)
