EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS

 

From Clare  Carmichael (Teacher) KTS Academy  Brotton, Cleveland May 2015

Thanks for a fantastic lively performance. The students had a wonderful time.

 

From (Music Coordinator), St. Helen's Girls School, Northwood

Ricardo, Just to say we thought your playing was fantastic yesterday. It was amazing to hear all the different styles. The maracas playing was an inspiration to all the girls and I would love to be able to play them like that too! Thank you once again for coming early too. Hope to meet you again soon. Gill (St. Helen's)

 

From  (Music Coordinator), John F. Kennedy Special School, London

Dear Ricardo,

Thank you once again for coming to play for us.  Almost without exception the students thoroughly enjoyed your performances, from those with the most profound difficulties, to the small groups of mainstream boys from Rokeby School next door – and of course the staff!  

The variety of moods you created with the harp, cuatro, maracas and vocals kept everyone interested, if not fascinated.  As you saw, the students loved accompanying your rhythms with their own movements, clapping and vocals.  Also, allowing them to explore the harp afterwards was a real winner, especially as it is an instrument most would never have encountered and certainly not heard being played in this way. The expressions on the faces in the enclosed photos, I think, tell it all.  

We do hope you will be able to visit us again some time. With Best Wishes,

PROFESSIONAL  ARTISTS / PERFORMERS 

 

From Joanna Migdal

Dear Ricardo,
We hope you got back safely and with speed.
Thank you for making our evening so very memorable and creating such a special atmosphere...deep quiet listening is so rare in an audience these days...I think your perfect playing took everyone’s  breath away...thank you, thank you for all those years of practice that have made it all seem so easy and delightful on the night.
We hope very, very much to see you again soon. I will write to Julian Hubbersguilt in the New Year and tell him what a great success our evening was.

With all the sunniest wishes for Christmas and the New Year

George and Joanna
 

From Professor Guitarist David Caswell

 I have shared several successful concerts with multitalented Ricardo Curbelo...

 

From Russian Poet/Playwright, Noskou

Ricardo, I was very much impressed

with your music, especially with your original compositions in which I find a combination of creativity, discipline and emotion we rarely find in our 

times. Today we can find many artists technically brilliant  but with a lack of emotions, or too emotional, but with the absence of skills. In your case, I feel I am completely happy with your music and performance ...

 

From Guitarist/Singer/Songwriter, Kai Jansen

...His poetic realism I have always admired...

From The President of the Rotary Club, Paddington, London

...he has a command of Latin American harp music second to none.

 

From  Director James Cape,  Photolibrary Group Ltd. London Ricardo really added some star quality to a client event that we recently held in Covent Garden.
He gauged the mood of our clientele perfectly and responded accordingly. The event was a huge success and I was delighted that Ricardo was there to play an integral part.

   

From Jeff, on behalf of event Organizers, St Margaret's House. London: 

Dear Ricardo,

It is with many thanks that I write this short note to convey the appreciation of others and myself for your visit to the garden party and the tremendous performance which you gave. There is something extra special about the harp for all people around the world and you brought this special angel to dwell  in the garden, and we miss you; and we want you to be there every morning, but unfortunately, like all precious and extremely valuable things, they

are very rare and we must wait and pray for next year.

Best regards from Jeff.
