“Marina Rodriguez Brià transmits his music in each gesture. Natural, emotional, free, direct … Marina Rodriguez inaugurated the Maria del Carme Grauvilardell auditorium of St. Vincenç on March 28 with a piano recital full of memories and surprises.

“Pianist Marina Rodríguez released an album about Albéniz for children … She feels especially enthusiastic about this project because, in addition to having recorded the composer’s most emblematic pieces, she has performed for the first time an unpublished piece.  “He composed it when he was eight years old and it is called Military March. We found it in the Albéniz historical archive at the Music Museum of Barcelona. It was very exciting playing this piece for the first time.”

“The Elbphilharmonie presents four outstanding international productions for children. The series opens with an ensemble from the concert hall L’Auditori de Barcelona, performing their imaginative Girasons programme. The saxophone quartet clair-obscur from Berlin creates the second concert around the story of the Valiant Little Tailor. From Vienna comes Tetete with their Cinema Bees and Bee Cinema. The finale of the series is an appearance of Officer Fluke and the Villains, another group from Austria with an award-winning children’s programme.”

“… Among the most important recordings played with Slocker pianoforte, it is noticeable the interpretation of Albert Romaní in the album Music of the Hispanic keyboard key (1700-1800), with instruments from the period of the Museum of Music, of 1998, and of 1999,  played by Marina Rodriguez Brià with Muzio Clementi’s eight waltzes in the album Miniatures 4.

Magazine of Museo de la Música de Barcelona, April, 2008


“A factor that remains intact throughout the album is the solid technique displayed by the pianist, who offers versions of rich musicality and technical accuracy.”

Revista Musical Catalana,  No. 233, Barcelona, 2004. Jordi Salazar


“The name of this book is so original, Pianòries, as its content. A work that stands out from the ordinary manuals.”

Regió 7. Manresa, 6/11/2002. G.C.

“Marina Rodríguez Brià, an outstanding pianist, who is just as good at playing Bach, Scarlatti, Debussy or Beethoven’s devilish 32 Variations in C minor, as she introduced into the performance a touch of subtle humour.”

- El Secret de la Castanyola amb José de Udaeta (The Secret of the Castanet with José de Udaeta). Festival de Sant Feliu de Guíxols, Girona -

2001. Alfons Hereu i Ruax


“Udaeta displays a splendid performance, along with two overwhelming figures: the classical and flamenco dancer and castanet performer from Vilanova i la Geltrú, Belén Cabanes, and the pianist from Sant Vicenç de Castellet, Marina Rodríguez. They were both over brimming with talent at the Catalan National Theatre, TNC.”

“… The album of Marina Rodriguez displays the fine temperament of these Clementine miniatures, which are played with a sense of musicality, thoroughness and accuracy, lend a sweet sense to the musical humour suitable for all audiences, especially for the young… Although Sonatinas has been played with a modern Steinway piano, the waltzes have been performed with a 1831 modern Steinway piano very well preserved in the Museu de la Música de Barcelona, similar to that ones that Clementi made.”

La Vanguardia, Barcelona, 22/10/99. Á.R.F.


“… This album shows the friendly face of Muzio Clementi (…) In the interpretation of pianist Marina Rodriguez, with collaboration of two percussionists (Gardeñas Jordi and Pilar Subirà) a communicative interest appears to express neatness and to disseminate this music (…) Do not miss this collection of Miniatures, especially this last album, dedicated to Muzio Clementi by pianist Marina Rodriguez Brià. “

“Clàssica”, critique of music by Àlex Robles, Catalunya Cultura, Barcelona, 13/10/99

“The multiple sounds of castanets were introduced in the performance of pianist Marina Rodriguez, who wisely performed the program of the night with all its involved technical requirements and interpretative variants as if she was playing in a chamber music ensemble.”

M.R. June 1999


 “Marina Rodríguez owns a great technique as well great energy at the keyboard, which she also conveys by attracting the audience’s whole attention, creating the necessary atmosphere to open up communication. The concert lasted approximately an hour, which just flew by.”
