The orchestra sounded warm and well-blended, at home in Poulenc’s music without sacrificing its unmistakeable German timbre. This was undoubtedly a fine performance by Maestro Vicent

Mark Berry / Gewandhausorchester Leipzig

Preciso análisis de Josep Vicent, que ha sabido desplegar todo el potencial dinámico y colorista con sentido lúdico sustentando en todo momento el impulso rítmico. (…) una de las sinfonías más hermosas de Chaikovski, con la que Josep Vicent cautivó al auditorio desde la concentración que pedía a la orquesta. (…)
