"Francisco embodies all the qualities expected of a great musician, not least the ability, impossible to learn (but the result of a precious and rare natural talent) to perform his music with a touching sense of inevitability and naturalness. In addition to this Francisco showed a precocious and peremptory talent in the field of composition. It is difficult to imagine what goals he will be able to achieve in the near future!"
"Francisco Luis is an artist with a rare attention to detail. His approach to every piece he plays involves a love and passion that comes out in how thoughtful and considered his approach to dynamics, articulation, and even technique is. Rather than being limited by his instrument or individual technical attributes, Francisco demonstrates what can happen when an artist thinks deeply about the music they are playing and knows how they can best express their musical conclusions using the tools available to them. His dedication to transcription, composition, and improvisation also means that with every piece he has something fresh and special to say, not only for the sake of doing something new or innovative, but to explore the music on a deeper level and share what he has found with his audience."
