“Your concert was so lovely;  I was really tired at the beginning (cause I hadn’t slept well the night before) – but by the end of it I was energised, it was great.   Everyone did the readings so well, especially Leonardo :)!
And I loved the Ravel (haven’t heard the Tombeau for ages) – the last two pieces by Lecuona were so beautiful.   It was all nice, and a good atmosphere too, with all the readers and variety.” Helen Moore
Was great to see you playing last night – we really enjoyed the concert!” Yaz

“Clara Rodriguez played brilliantly and chose the texts very well for us to read. I enjoyed it very much. The audience enjoyed it too.” Timothy Adès
“Clara, Thanks so much for a wonderful evening. I was so moved to see how you have grown into an artist with so much to say and such a command of the music you play. Loved the readings. Phyllis would have been proud of you and the person you have become. I guess she taught us much more than how to play the piano!” Adrian Sims
