“Blanco did honor to the reputation that was preceding her with a magic concert. Through her
art, we were living one of those rare moments in which a very special chemistry is created
between the space, the listeners and the interpreter” JM Banyoles
“Full of solemnity and force, Blanco melts in one with her instrument“
