Ionas Mercadal clarinet international soloist

"The clarinet-Mephisto"

Süddeutsche Zeitung

"The clarinet-Mephisto, who truly took the audience's breath away and received a thunderous ovation."

Josep Pons

"A few weeks ago, Ionas collaborated with the orchestra of the "Gran Teatre del Liceu" in a seasonal concert, playing Gustav Mahler's third symphony in the role of a second clarinet, under my direction. I have to say, honestly, that it has caught my attention to have found myself in front of a musician and clarinetist not only excellent, but considering his youth, even exceptional..."

Prof. Harald Harrer

"Mr. Mercadal possesses excellent clarinetistic and artistic abilities. His technical prowess, coupled with determination, diligence, and musical-emotional intelligence, surpasses the average by far."

Manfred Preis

"I met him during masterclasses and concerts. An exceptional clarinetist with artistic depth and magnificent virtuosity. His stage presence is captivating. I am sure he will continue to create a stir in the music world!"
(... ich bin sicher, er wird der Musikwelt noch viel Aufsehen bereiten!)
