“... the sound that Miguel Ángel Tamarit managed to get out of his instrument was very appropriate: pure, crystalline ... the perfect timbre to evoke that sonorous and nostalgic atmosphere that Mozart tries to create. This is followed by a question and answer game in which he highlighted the complicity shown between the members of the Berlin Philharmonic Quintet and especially between Coelho and Tamarit.

"... the day before yesterday he exhibited here a great artistic level. Tamarit took advantage of the opportunity offered by this score and made an impact again creating phrases well-endowed with breath, as she did in the "larghetto", and playing with great finesse in the first and last movements, the "allegro con variazioni", where the ensemble al plenary joined the soloist in a display of virtuosity and wit.
"... with the elegance and rhythm in Poulenc and the palette of colours used in the Première Rhapsodie of Debussy, clarinettist Miguel Angel Tamarit gave us a spectacular evening, its creation and trade staged musical discourse at all times..."
"... the virtuosity and elegance combined with talent and complicity on stage, were an explosive mixture that Miguel Angel Tamarit clarinettist presented us with the perfect music."
