Reviews

“Lucienne’s animation – often seeming to almost dance along with the liveliest parts of the concerto – was perhaps a product of her youth, while her confidence and expressive interpretation certainly belied it.” (Cambridgenews, June 2017)

“She has an incredible talent, she is small, but when she comes on stage, the stage is completely filled. Classical and Jazz – she can have the cake and eat it too.” (Weingarten Musiktage, September 2016)

“Wunderkid, Lucienne Renaudin Vary stands out because of her exceptional virtuosity and her amazing maturity. Playing together with the most famous French trumpet players in many festivals, this trumpet player makes a huge impression with her easy-going way of playing and the natural projection of her sonority.” (Booklet of Victoires de la Musique Classique 2013)
