“Conducting fellow Carlos Ágreda led a complex and intelligent performance from the pit… . He balanced the incongruities in Weill’s score with aplomb and treated Menotti’s music with the sensitivity and respect it deserves… . Ágreda is a name we’ll hear for years to come.”

Cameron Kelsall, Broad Street Review, May 2018


“Ágreda looks every inch a conductor. His technique is admirably economical, with the left hand kept out of the way whenever it is not needed for expressive molding of phrases, and displaying also an ample supply of charisma he created the feeling that this could well be a major career in the making.”

Bernard Jacobson, Seen and Heard International, February 2017


“Musically and vocally they were all strong, as was the orchestra and leadership in the pit from Carlos Ágreda.”

Peter Dobrin, The Inquirer Daily News, May 2018


“What helped immeasurably was beautifully polished playing from the orchestra, under the sure hand of conductor Carlos Ágreda.”

David Fox, Parterre Box, May 2018
