“…the performance that followed had moments of real distinction, with some fine solos from oboist Jose Garcia Vegara…”

The Telegraph

“…Impactante fue la recreación del Concierto para violín, oboe y orquesta del mismo autor en el que brilló el oboísta José Luis García Vegara en diálogo con el violín de Weithaas…”

El Periódico

“…Wehmütig und emotional spielte García Vegara, schöpfte das ganze Potenzial des weichen, melodiösen Oboen-Ton aus. Feinfühlig und geheimnisvoll, sehnsüchtig wie leidenschaftlich…”

Oberhessische Presse

“Stabil im Kern, geschmeidig an der Oberfläche, beredet in der Aussage, bot deren Solo-Oboist José Luis Garcia Vegara das C-Dur-Konzert RV 447. Den Langsamen Mittelsatz sang er geschmackvoll aus, unangestrengt blitzen die Läufe der raschen Ecksätze.”
