“Amongst the concerts with a especial success this year we count the Clarinet Concerto with Estellés” […]
“The true nature of his playing lies not just at the intellectual level of interpretation, but in his ability to open doors in a way that approximates to the very act of creation at its most elemental: sheer physical enjoyment”.
“A top quality conductor.”
“Estellés played like an angel in the Schubert lied ‘The Sheperd on the Rock’.”
“The version presented here (of the world premiere of the work) is absolutely brilliant and of the highest level”.
“The performance we heard put Estellés’ clarinet to the forefront, ‘Vox Humana’ to the extent of enchanting for the variety of accents and for the extreme mellow colors, able to lend the piece aditional magic”.
“He is a great instrumentalist and is called to be one of the great conductors of this country.” José Luis Turina (Artistic Director of the National Youth Orchestra of Spain)
“José-Luis Estellés seduced us with the warmth and quality of his clarinet sound, especially in K489 by Mozart, where he amazed us with the smoothness and delicacy with which he dispatched the articulation and phrasing.”
“Estellés has conducted really successfully in every way. He has shown its elegance, his mastery of euphonic space, an anticipated upbeat pulse, the expression in his left hand, attention to detail at the entrances and a natural rhythm with the baton…”
“… rarely an artist achieves that cry is as long, exciting and torn than in tonight’s Pórtico.”
