Luis Polanco"El Periodico"

“Undoubtedly, one of the greatest events of the musical season in Barcelona this year (2004). "The Homilies of Organya" by Carbonell will become a reference for future generations.”

Janet ColemanCatRadio Café, WBAI Radio 99.5FM NYC

“the original music of "Teresa's Ecstasy" is very soulful, earthy and mystical, its flavour transports you to the mediterranean landscape and everything about it is very cool. An amazing character and a wonderful composer.”

F. Taverna Bech "Catalan Music Magazine"

Zodiac is a masterful composition. An admirable work, with its specific formal gravity, imaginative choral writing and the ability to establish dynamic contrasts, Carbonell's piece ended the concert with deep affection.”

BOZARCenter for Fine Arts Brussels

Quartier Liberté is a joyous celebration which brings together people from different backgrounds and cultures. Albert Carbonell composed the music which reflects this spirit of tolerance and community. This cantata is an ode to peace, full of joyous sounds and melodies. ”
