    Ravishing Ravel : Pianist Vincent Larderet closed this year's French-themed PianoTexas Festival at Texas Christian University. 
    "Appropriate to the arrival, just a few hours after the close of the recital, of July—the month of the great national holidays of both the U.S. and France—Larderet encored with Debussy’s Prelude Feu d’artifice (“Fireworks”), delivered with explosive energy."

    "Larderet delivers a personal and well-crafted performance of Images Book I, choosing unusual voicings which produce admirable clarity from start to finish. Further in his performances of the second Book of Préludes, he shares unique interpretative ideas, sculpting every texture and layer as if painting a picture and telling a story with his sound. [...] Where this disc truly shines, however, is in Larderet arrangement of the Caplet transcription of Debussy Symphonic Fragments of Le Martyre de saint Sébastien. [...] On this disc, one hears two masters at work : Debussy for harmony and style, and Larderet for flair and appeal."

    "This is a stunningly played recital of two of Debussy’s most familiar cycles and a world premiere of pianist Vincent Larderet’s expansion of André Caplet’s piano reduction of Debussy’s incidental music to Grabriele D’Annunzio’s Le Martyre de saint Sébastien. Reviews in these pages of Larderet’s previous work have been unanimously positive. Peter Burwasser recently (40:4) grouped him with Pollini, Brendel, and Badura-Skoda as 'masterful technicians and intellectual[s].' John Bell Young wrote (39:3) that Larderet 'has blossomed into a great pianist indeed.' And Colin Clarke (35:5) described his playing as 'gripping and multitimbred.' I will add that it is full of vivid colors, subtle rubato, and an equal affinity for the contemplative and the virtuosic aspects of Debussy’s writing."

    "Vincent Larderet, with his interpretation of the second Book of [Debussy's] Préludes in comparison with the youngest of the named 'old Master' [Krystian Zimerman], is almost on equal footing. The juxtaposition of individual voices and chords, the highly differentiated dynamics and the parallel play of colors require the interpreter to achieve a maximum in the areas of agogics and pedaling. Larderet possesses great subtlety in this regard. [...] The symphonic fragments from Le Martyre de saint Sébastien are a real enrichment on Larderet's SACD."

    "The musicality of Larderet, his art of transitions and the quest for the mystery behind appearances are perfectly suited to the First Series of Images and the Book II of Preludes which the soloist brings an orchestral dimension (Feux d’artifice). [...] A stone in the debussyst edifice. "

    "Vincent Larderet’s extremely clear and finely nuanced playing combined with one almost symphonic sound sensibility reduced for the piano, serves Debussy’s music very well. On the CD there is also a premiere recording : a suite from Le Martyre de saint-Sébastien transcribed for piano by André Caplet."

    “Around 20 km from Strasbourg, the Würth Museum of Erstein inaugurated in 2008 offers a beautiful setting for a piano festival which Vincent Larderet provides the artistic Direction. [...] The program which Vincent Larderet chose for the inaugural evening is distinguished by its density. [...] In the second part, Liszt's Après une lecture de Dante is performed with greatness, dexterity and a deep sonority which underlines the importance of the teaching received in Lübeck with Bruno Leonardo Gelber.” (France)

    "French pianist Vincent Larderet belongs to that class of artists who are both masterful technicians and intellectual. His compatriot Pierre-Laurent Aimard is also in this category, and in the previous generation we can include Maurizio Pollini, Alfred Brendel (...). He conveys a sense of a young genius still trying to find a proper vehicle for what is already a distinctive voice."

    “I am convinced that we will speak a lot of Vincent Larderet in the future. His Brahms has a huge tragic force for the depth of sound, breath phrasing, the density of speech and a lyrical, passionate, painful intensity. (…) A great value CD on which the ghost of Claudio Arrau seems to appear in the background.”

    "Vincent Larderet hat sich nun beider Werke für eine CD angenommen, und sein eigener Beihefttext zeigt, dass er sich eine Menge Gedanken um die Hintergründe dieses Programms gemacht hat. Die intensive geistige Durchdringung der Materie wird in seinem Spiel durchaus auch hörbar. Larderet vermag zudem eine Menge Plastizität in die Satzstruktur zu bringen: Wer tiefer in die Stücke einsteigen will, dem liefert Larderet einen Höreindruck von so bemerkenswerter Klarheit, dass er einen analytischen Zugang zur Materie passagenweise fast ohne Notentext in der Hand ermöglicht."

    “Larderet plays with commanding virtuosity, purposeful direction and shows a real empathy for this music. [ Brahms Sonata n°3 op.5 ]” 
    “It’s a performance [ Berg's Sonata op.1 ] that sets the bar high, and stands side by side with two of my favourites by Mitsuko Uchida and Glenn Gould.”
