Phillip Scott
Fanfare, May 2015

…Padullés presents a well contrasted program, dipping into this fascinating and little-known area of the song repertoire. Pitch is never a problem, and he negotiates the vocal lines with ease. Burnside’s accompaniment…is superlative: Supportive and sensitive, he contributes a great deal to the success of the recital. © 2015 Fanfare Read complete review

Gramophone, March 2015

…this thoughtfully crafted all-Mompou recital featuring a young Catalan tenor has the double virtue of introducing a promising young singer in little-known music. © 2015 Gramophone Read complete review on Gramophone

American Record Guide, March 2015

I am captivated by the magical mood these songs create, and Catalan tenor Padullés is a fine communicator of the varied moods of these songs. It’s no surprise that Burnside offers his usual superb collaboration. The two of them convey the serenity of the songs when that is needed and the fire of the songs when that needs to come out. Padullés’s voice expresses the dreaminess of the music one moment and its ardor the next. © 2015 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Roger Padullés has a beautiful voice and he has the ability to express the soft nuances as well as the dramatic outbursts with equal ease. Iain Burnside is a sensitive accompanist. With excellent recorded sound this is a delightful disc that should be heard by everyone with an interest in art-songs. © 2015 MusicWeb International Read complete review
