Francisco José Garcia Verdú


"In words of the film director and critic of musician Emiliano Allende in the newspaper El Norte de Castilla November 2017”:
Crystalline sound, great virtuoso, excelent musician, strong artist future.

Victoria M. Child for his part, was writing in the same newspaper: "The pianist Verdú also surprised for its seriousness, for its containment.

Exquisite and confirmed pulsation, cleanliness of sound, clear sound in every note, and in sum one more version intimist and orthodox, more classic. If it should to look for models well Verdú might remind us to the big Brendel. The precociousness in the career of Verdú has reduced depth neither in its musicality nor perfection in its execution.
