They say... 

"... she has a perfect diction, an impeccable pronunciation, a safe and thorough vocal technic, a voice of rare beauty and, above all, the essential, an exquisite musicality. I remember that their actuation  created a magical silence, with a    very high expectance,  like in a concert hall, when the place and  circumstance were not particularly suitable for such situation.  I think Laia Falcón it is more than  a promise, is an undeniable fact, which I hope to hear soon, again and again "
(José Luis Pérez de Arteaga,
Report to the  Interpreters Association, AIE, May 20, 2010)

 " I underline Laia Falcón's scenic ability  and her  amazing expressive power."
(Mirella Freni, Teatro alla Scala in Milan, April 2009)

"… surprised me very vividly the perfect vocal control and beautiful tone of Laia Falcon, as well as how to adapt the expressive possibilities of  her voice and personality to so many different musical styles, whether Handel, Schubert and Kurt Weill. For me it is one of the few rising stars in the world of singers. "
(Hansjörg Schellenberger, report, April 2009)
