probably the first experience combining flamenco dancing and symphonic classical music!



"Having heard many musical concerts, and seen countless dance performances with some of the best artists in the world i.e. pianists and flamenco dancers, I believe that this evening captured something extremely special and unusual.

To see and hear two soloists, from their specialised and very expert fields, come together and their souls to intertwine in such a way, is beyond words, or any expletives I could attempt to throw in their direction. 

Mere words would do them a disservice.

They became as one in harmonious accord and yet each had a strong place and voice in the performance.

The power, technique, subtleties and dynamics of the pianist, matched the dancer's raw and yet controlled energy every step and stamp of the way.

No story was needed, however, it felt as though a story was in fact unravelling.

It also captured the true Flameco feeling of improvisation, even though it was not improvised.

A true skill, from both soloist.


A rare and wonderful vision, "Piano and Flamenco" in partnership.

I hope this will be repeated in the near future. 

It would surely be a certain success and watched by a very fortunate audience."

" Mi se pare fascinant. Nu as fi crezut ca o astfel de combinatie ar putea functiona! 

Transmite foarte multa emotie si armonie. "
Serge Roman ( regizor, Barcelona) 

"In aceasta perioada este nevoie de idei noi si de asocieri intre arte diferite. Dumneavoastra ati reusit, ati facut-o atat de frumos si expresiv si va felicit pentru aceasta. Este o deschidere de traseu care ar trebui continuata si diversificata."
