“Moreno and the orchestra were locked in a musical tango hold, Moreno’s lyrical, dusky-toned solos punctuated by the sonic equivalent of the Argentine dance’s lightning-quick leg flicks.”
Houston Chronicle, September 2017
“Formidable technique…compelling execution”
The Scotsman, May 2016
“Both Moreno and Temirkanov had a determinedly forthright approach that, despite the work’s fundamental lyricism, emphasised the movement’s sharp edges and emotional intensity. The soloist’s sweet tone also found a perfect partnership in the limpid beauty of the slow movement, with its striking opening pizzicato accompaniment.”
bachtrack, November 2015
“She has a truly spectacular technique, and it’s allied with an individual voice and approach which mark her out as a very special talent indeed.”
5* Manchester Evening News, November 2014
“She has the grace of a flamenco dancer, the strength of character of an Andalucian cantaora and the smouldering gaze of one of Almodovar’s heroines. Without a doubt Spain has just found a perfect musical ambassador.”
