    • Vähän yli kolmekymppinen Coelho teki inspiroivan debyytin Tampereella. Tämän konsertin perusteella hän voi edetä urallaan vaikka minkälaisiin korkeuksiin. Hänessä on temperamenttja ja tarkkuutta, ja elekieli viestii puhdasta musiikkia ilman minkäänlaista teatraalisuutta. Coelho, in his early thirties, made an inspiring debut in Tampere. On the basis of this concert, he can go to any number of heights in his career. He has temperament and precision, and his gestures convey pure music without any theatricality. ★★★★★
