Dryads Duo


“…três sonatas de Janáček, Ravel e Enescu, tocadas com uma sensibilidade cativante, própria de dois artistas de quem certamente muito ouviremos falar num futuro próximo.” Rui Branco in Jornal de Notícias, Janeiro 2013.


“The Dryads Duo perform beautifully together, featuring a fine balance between instruments and great expression in each work; Carla Santos displays a clear intonation and fluid technique, with harmonics of almost bell-like clarity in the Enescu second movement, while Saul Picado has a great left & right hand balance and offers a beautiful foundation to each piece. The self-titles debut CD from Dryads Duo is a great new release featuring innovative programming and great performances from a vibrant new voice in classical music.” Nick Peros, Phoenix Classical


“Santos and Picado may just have emerged from their years in the conservatory, but this program shows how great a maturity they’ve attained; it can stand on its own merits, without exculpatory references to their youth. Strongly recommended” – Robert Maxham, Fanfare Magazine.
