“Intensity, brilliance, exquisite tuning and a delicate Romantic expression”
“Virtuosity and perfect balance at the service of a sincere expressivity and an interior lyricism, mastery and sonorous beauty“
(Javier Pérez Senz, El País)
And about her performance of the Bach Suites:
"... performed without further transcendentalism than the musical, direct communion with divinity without intermediaries. Neither romantic like Casals, grandiloquent like Rostropovich , or historicist like the Dutch or British purists. Personal versions those of Lacruz. Warm, searching and achieving the beauty of phrasing, the fluency of speech. Without following a previous fixed script, or a unique thought."
(Última Hora, Baleares)
