"Carles Lama & Sofia Cabruja are not two pianists playing on one piano; they are only one performer, one head, one sound, one synchronization, one phrasing, one poetry… They have a total mutual understanding, on the rhythm, on the spirit..."

 VERS L´AVENIR,
"Carles Lama and Sofia Cabruja complement each other admirably and form a duet of pianists that interpret the repertoire of piano for four hands with infinite elegance and sensitivity. They are very sure of their technique, which makes it possible for them to give themselves totally to the interpretation without worrying about the difficulties of the score... The musicians knew how to give this admirable piece of music, "The Fantasy in F Minor" by Schubert, which causes both tears and smiles, a palpable intensity with moving passages... the two dances by Falla swept the spectators up into a flaming whirlwind... "

REVIEW from
 COTTBUSER KULTUR,
"

From the first note, there was an absolute blend and a perfect rapport in each of the concert's passages... The pieces sounded as if they were played by one set of hands, as if they were from a single mould. Fantastic!

"
REVIEW from
 EST RÉPUBLICAIN,
