“Exceptional game of colors and delicate poetry”

Diario de Sevilla, 2017

“Exuding expressiveness and praiseworthy capacity of compenetration and sensitivity” 

Correo de Andalucía, 2017

“Bernier and Duro have decided to turn into a guitar duo, and along the way have  homogenized sound and personality, showing the cleanliness and refinement of their  work as soloists, now in an amazing conjunction. They played with an extreme control,  without ever overflowing the limits of good taste...”

Diario de Sevilla, 2018

"An interpretation as attentive to details and nuances as balanced in rhythm, (...)  prodigious delicacy."

El Correo, 2019

"Absolute Excellence!"

La Stampa (Italy)

"Guitarist Bernier is the first prize winner of Italy’s Michele Pittaluga Competition…He is  a fine player, with a virtuoso technique and a wide range of timbre and dynamics,  imaginative and expressive."

Kenneth Keaton

Murray Charters

Brantford Expositor, August 2011 (Canada)

"The performer had an excellent quality of sound, phrasings and changing of rhythm that  the audience was enthousiastic!"

El Periódico Mediterráneo (Spain)

“Performances full of warmth and feelings!”
