Le geste de la pianiste est aussi élégant que l’instrument et que les mélodies qui s’en échappent. La magie du piano qui chante sous les gestes précis et savants d’Ester Pineda envoûte toute la salle qui ne veut plus sortir de sa rêverie.  »La musique commence là où s’arrête le pouvoir des mots » disait Wagner. Ester pineda et son piano semble être l’illustration parfaite de cette citation. Un moment simplement beau.

(…) “Even if with the exception of Alicia de Larrocha one sees few Spanish pianists on the international scene, there is a very good school, very close to France, which has produced great virtuosos. Among these, one can find today Maria Luisa Cantos, Ester Pineda, Josep Colom, Joaquin Achúcarro and many others.”

(…) “She has character and sensitivity. And there is a richness in her touch which is the mark of great pianists. Falla's Nights in the Spanish Gardens didn't do justice to that night in the beautiful Ephrussi gardens, which was enriched by the sounds of Ester's piano".

André Pereygne - Nice Matin

"From the very first notes Ester Pineda becomes at one with a public charmed by the finesse of her interpretation and her masterful playing"

(…) “Turina should be better known. The proximity of Albéniz and de Falla has unfairly kept him in the dark. The recording of Clara Bonaldi and Ester Pineda repairs this.
The works are very attractive and the playing, with no complaisance, suits perfectly the atmosphere requiered in chamber music. Balance between both instruments, which is essential, provides us besides the pleasure of discovery, the satisfaction of the performance of these musicians that do not try to glow by themselves but to serve, and truly serve, Turina’s music.»

Jean ROY - Le Monde de la Musique

«Turina’s compositions find in Clara Bonaldi and Ester Pineda, two sensitive performers for the art vibrant, warm and subtle of the composer. We have to congratulate and to thank the music editor to allow discophiles know such an original work of one of the most important Spanish music composers that the shadow of Albéniz, Granados and de Falla have partially eclipsed»
