“Exhilarating lyricism. Vanessa Benelli Mosell enchants the audience in the Schwarzwaldhalle.” – Sarah Lindenmayer, BNN
“Vanessa Benelli Mosell is a Universal musical genius. She must have an unlimited capacity for absorption, because the program …
even though it does not contain unusual compositions, it’s also not the most common repertoire pieces…
After the first bars it was clear that this was matched by a straightforward and elegant conducting” – Westfalenblatt
