The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah – Catherine Reese

 

"The program’s centerpiece was a bravura performance in Liszt’s Piano Concerto No.1 attacked with confidence and flair. Her strength in the splashy chords and sparkling runs of the first movement was matched in a thoughtful nicely controlled slow movement that alternated episodes of shade and sunlight'.

 

"The growing responsiveness between soloist and orchestra was most evident in an exuberant finale that brought the audience to its feet'.

Summerkeys Concert Series (Lubec, Maine) – Bruce Potterton, Director

 

"In Beethoven’s Opus 57 Sonata, her certain grasp of the composer’s subtle rhythmic and dynamic shifts coupled with her effortless technique lent a startling freshness to her interpretation; the relaxed breathing of the long under-phrases in the finale was memorable'.

 

"… in Chopin’s B-flat Minor Nocturne sounding like a spontaneous creation, a poem directed at her listeners'.

 

"… in the slow movement of Prokofieff’s 6th Sonata riding wave upon wave of lovely voicing…'
