Wie ben ik?

"The firmly eloquent violin of Javier Lupiáñez.” GRAMOPHONE, March 2012

"Francisco Javier Lupiáñez possède un jeu diabolique, quelque part entre Paganini et Méphistophélès. Son archet déploie tous les motifs de la séduction : rubatos enjôleurs, glissandos imperceptibles, rythmes ensorceleurs… Ces audaces esthétiques s’appuient sur une technique impeccable.” Pierre-Carl Langlais, Qbuz

"Le violon virtuose et goûteux de Francisco Javier Lupiañez.” ODB-Opéra
