Debut Palau - Ópera Actual

En estas dos obras de Manén, las únicas del programa, fue en las que más se lució la Orquestra del Reial Cercle Artístic de Barcelona, fundada en su día por Enric Granados. Dirigida por Néstor Bayona, la formación mostró una sección de cuerdas compacta, buen trabajo de acompañamiento en las canciones y fluido diálogo en el Concertino de Manén.

Debut Palau - El Periódico

Néstor Bayona, al mando de la Orquestra del Reial Cercle Artístic de Barcelona, acompañó con buen sentido de concertación la breve e interesante pieza que permite al solista mostrar todo su potencial expresivo; ecléctico, Migó no renuncia a la melodía ni a las sonoridades más actuales.

Debut Palau - Revista Musical Catalana

Cal destacar finalment el bon nivell assolit per l’Orquestra del Reial Cercle Artístic i l’important treball del director Néstor Bayona. Enfrontada a obres d’estils i exigències molt diferents, totes absolutament fora del repertori habitual de les orquestres, aquest antic conjunt fundat per Enric Granados l’any 1900 va sonar bé i va ser peça fonamental per aconseguir que el concert fos un èxit.

Luisa Miller re-orchestration

Néstor Bayona succeeds in this challenge. The former assistant conductor of the Opera of Marseille, recalled by Maurice Xiberras takes over the entire orchestration of Giuseppe Verdi and reduces the number of musicians, so that everyone has the required distance, while retaining strength sound and musical coherence with respect for the work of the composer. Reducing the quartet, the winds become one per desk, Néstor Bayona creates a sound balance without disfiguring the orchestral part, preserving the instrument solos and musical inflections, for support and great cohesion in the accompaniments.

Concert at the Philharmonie Berlin

The young musicians master this music brilliantly, but they also have a young conductor in Nestor Bayona who is very attentive to detail, and this comes through in the fine sounds of Franz Berwald's "Remembrance of the Norwegian Alps
