“A virtuous Sergio Alapont conducts the Orquesta de Valencia in style, so clear and precise, with musical intention and inspiration.” El Periódico Mediterráneo
“Sergio Alapont, at the height of its important conducting career, took the podium transmitting security to the musicians and especially inspired interpretation.” Levante EMV
“Andantes initial march, with the “cold” sound of horns and brass and sparkling lightness and sensuality “demonic” of the seducer in the Allegro molto of the second part… Alapont has given considerable impetus to the execution, emphasizing the character in a sense “Dionysian” of this symphony, thanks to the dense style of the strings and the vividness of colors. Audience excited and perfectly right.” Domenico Del Nero
“The cohesion and precision which Sergio Alapont draws from every member of the orchestra is praiseworthy. Musical phrases are sculpted and details are subtle and nuanced.” Emmanuel Dupuy, Diapason
