Press resonance

… this concerto has an infectious drive and generally superb playing which carries the extra weight of its extended thematic development. (Classical CD Reviews, Nov 2006)

Pureté des lignes, art des modulations sonores, délicatesse du jeu… tout y est, avec une mention spéciale pour le son de flûte de Stéphane Réty d’une admirable souplesse. Peut-être certains jugeront-ils – précisément en raison de cet attachement à la pureté des lignes, avec très peu de vibrato – le résultat final quelque peu statique, mais l’atmosphère trouvée par les artistes de ce disque respecte pourtant au plus près l’intimité musicale de ces pages. (D V, Travesières, 6 / 2004)

Vielleicht noch eine Spur origineller als bei Telemann verbinden sich in dieser Musik gepflegtes “divertissement” mit herausforderner Virtuosität der Flöte, die Réty spielend meiterte. … Bachs 5. Brandenburgisches Konzert, gespielt auf dem Niveau, das heute Standard ist. Nachdem Réty und auch gabetta mehrmals gezeigt hatten was sie können, erfreute nun der Cembalist Paronunzzi… (Nikolaus Cybinski, Basellandschaftlichezeitung, 12.04.11, Switzerland)

… Stéphane Réty, kelle saavutuste nimekiri kavavihikus lubas kõrgeimat taset. Ja nii ka oli. Eriliselt paistis Réty silma virtuoossusega – ka kõige kiiremad noodid olid selgelt ja puhtalt välja mängitud. Kuid silma torkas ka tema eriline temperament: nii miimika kui ka žestidega elas ta muusikale ja vahel ka saatvate muusikute tegevusele pidevalt kaasa. … puhkpillimuusika-hiiuks osutus juba eelmainitud prantsuse flöödikunstnik Stéphane Réty, kes esitas koos klavessinist Irina Zahharenkovaga XVIII sajandi saksa flöödisonaatide kahe poolega kava: Graun, Hasse, W. F. Bach, Telemann. Kava oli seega ülinõudlik ja vahel ka veidi igav (eredaim teos oli W. F. Bachi Sonaat e-moll), kuid see igavus oli suursugune. Réty pidas imetlusväärse kindlusega vastu ega teinud ühtainsatki vääratust… (Mart Jaanson, Sirp, 05.08.11, Estonia, whole article)
