"The clarinetist Tolo Genestar, supported in his instrument of penetrating loudness, being incisive when necessary, provides a highly virtuosic and great knowledge of the many intricacies of this music of Jewish inspiration, nothing simple in the strictly technical plane for the interpreter that is about it."
Opera World - Germán García (21/02/2018)

It is a brilliant album, an enriching window to the rich sound world of Jewish culture.
Revista Melómano - Pedro Téllez (14/05/2018)

MazikDuo's first personal project, which is presented in this way in society as a duet of instrumentalists and as a prestigious brand. (...) A cultural product of high musicological value and historical and social interest.
