    "Vincent Larderet comes back with an intriguing and mysterious program that commands respect by its difficulty and subtlety. It can be generated from this pianistic telescoping a desire to emphasize the symphonic dimension of the instrument in some works. The solid interpretation of the pianist is perfect for this project that requires it ! A solar and passionate playing which solicits our imagination to each stave and knows how to transfigure the piano in large orchestra."

    "The audience is still buzzing at the audacity and talent of the artist they have just seen. Vincent Larderet’s program truly eschewed half measures: Brahms’ Third Sonata, Scriabin’s Prelude & Nocturne for the Left Hand, Rachmaninoff’s Second Sonata. Without affectation or histrionics, he imposes a colorful, powerful and supremely controlled style. His Scriabin shows admirable mastery of the independence of the lines. The composer’s writing surely invites this, but there remains the challenge of transforming this technical requirement into sonic poetry. For Larderet aims for expression and touches the heart of music. In Rachmaninoff’s Sonata (…) from the angry entrance to the final apotheosis, the piano is a noble, expressive thoroughbred."

    "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."

    "Vincent Larderet played Robert Schumann’s Symphonic Studies with astonishing passion and power; allied to great technical skill (…) He placed his virtuosity at the service of the music."

    “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."

    "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."
