Review excerpt:
"How pulsing with life, on the other hand, was Ferran Cruixent's orchestral piece "Virtual": the Spaniard, who has just become a father, was inspired by his wife's pregnancy. And doesn't one hear the first heartbeats of the child in the ultrasound, the labour pains as forte fortissimo in the entire orchestra as well as the comforting sound of the music box? A cheerful yet also well-composed work."
(Oliver Schwambach, Saarbrücker Zeitung, 16.5.2011)
