"The Psychological Morphologies According to Matta by Luis Saglie is the most abstract composition on the disc. The three-movement work represents the composer’s musical response to paintings by the Chilean surrealist painter Roberto Matta. It is in many ways the most technically challenging work on the disc, especially the final movement, and suits Figueiredo’s muscular style of playing very well; she handles the formidable difficulties with panache."
Review of CD Intuition by The Clarinet Magazine, September 2021
"The Hu Xuan Dance calls for some virtuosity from the clarinetist and Figueiredo plays her difficult part with seeming ease. Her trill is fast and even, her legato smooth as glass. As we turn to another part of the world, the beginning of Miguel Del Aguila’s Seducción calls for legato from the pianist and Ünal makes it sound like the embodiment of crème caramel. When the music gives way to a fast Latin dance she and Figueiredo keep listeners’ ears glued to the irregular rhythms of this most entertaining music."
