Classica 5 / 5July 2002"The Toccata by Prokofiev is perhaps given the most outstanding performance in the entire catalogue, more controlled than Horowitz’s , of a more relentless motoric motion, and therefore more hallucinatory, than Argerich’s, and with complete mastery of the piano’s tone."

Le FigaroJune 2001“Vincent Larderet’s recent performances coincide with the release of his second recording, which follows on from a first CD featuring a memorable Fantasia Bætica. The young pianist excels in the repertoire of the 20th century (…) He gave a simmering, captivating rendition of Scriabin’s Sonata-Fantasia (…) He brought the same composed skill to Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales, sonorously redolent, rhythmically exultant, in a register of total commitment (…) The boldness of this approach gave infinite texture to Prokofiev’s Toccata opus 11."

Le télégramme de BrestJune 1997"Vincent Larderet displayed superb maturity and impressive technique. His concert was a model of cohesion between a difficult score and an interpreter, for that is the only word that applies, capable of drawing majesty and emotion from the notes."
