La Esfera de Apolo | Classical

“With Lucía Martín-Cartón and Soledad Cardoso the ensemble has two outstanding singers in its ranks. They have clearly contrasting voices, but they blend perfectly as the many duets show. They also have the right temperament for this kind of repertoire which is essential to make it come across.”

Johan van Veen – www.musica-dei-donum.org

 

“Entre las voces, dos magníficas: la de la ya bien consolidada Soledad Cardoso junto a una joven vallisoletana que está a punto de convertirse en una de las grandes estrellas del Barroco español, Lucía Martín Cartón.”

Pablo J. VayónRevista Scherzo

 

“La interpretación a cargo del grupo holandés Música Temprana que dirige el argentino Adrián Rodríguez Van der Spoel es fantástica, de brillante sonoridad y sonido transparente, contando además con el talento de dos sopranos que demuestran ser expertas en el estilo: Lucía Martín-Cartón y Soledad Cardoso, de excelente control de la línea vocal y gran capacidad para el canto florido.”

Pablo Meléndez-HaddadRevista Ópera Actual

 

“A very important, not to say decisive factor in the promotion of this wonderful music are the vocal and instrumental qualities of the ensemble: these are, in a nutshell, world class. It is the combination of phenomenal esprit, perfect balance and voicing which for me drives this music to unprecedented heights. In this music making (I explicitly would like to involve the three vocalists here) there is so much finesse and sophistication that one can only conclude it’s breathtaking.”
