They say about us...

"Fantastic conference - concert. A month ago I visited the Instrumentos del Rey Sabio exhibition in Alicante and it was wonderful to find such a magnificent collection, congratulations."
January 2023.  Chema Argandoña

"Excellent work, stupendous and attractive conference, recital and interaction with those attending the event. Congratulations! This shows what I always say, any topic if done attractively and well, reaches people and is a success. Great professionals. Highly recommended ." November 2022. Domingo Fernández

"If there is something that characterizes the work of Emilio Villalba and Sara Marina, it is undoubtedly good taste. The delicacy with which they treat every detail of their records becomes evident even before listening to it, and is more than confirmed when playing it. " April 2021.

Revista Melómano

"When someone is capable of turning his hobby into a way of life, it shows in the passion with which he transmits his knowledge on that subject. Emilio Villalba can be considered a Renaissance man not only because of his love for Ancient Music, but because intervenes in the entire creation process." March 2019.  Diario de Sevilla
