“One of the world’s finest pianists.”
New York Times
…true genius. Her performances were passionate, rhapsodic and totally compelling. She is a marvellously exciting artist with a strong sense of structure.
Vital rhythms and an extraordinary range of colour were the outstanding features of her recital. She has the capacity to turn into a veritable tigress of the keyboard; but what is most striking about her is the delicate balance between heart and head, which resulted in thoughtful, magical sensuous performances.
…velvety keyboard touch, stunningly beautiful tone and extraordinary command of nuance. She gave one of the finest and most riveting performances I have ever heard. Her supple fingers had barely traversed the first few notes before it became clear that we were in for a rare treat.
She is absolutely marvellous! The “Appassionata” of Beethoven was quite superb and reminded me of just how it should be played. I must admit I haven’t heard such playing since the days of Myra Hess.
Josef Rezits, Buffalo University, USA
She gave a performance that was as rich in imagination as it was in bravura. It combined all the necessary weight with kaleidoscopic colours. Her extrordinary range of colour varied from a velvet-soft sound that was little more than a murmur, to a full-bodied, monumental fortissimo that never produced a harsh sound. It was some of themost remarkable and moving playing that wil remain in this critic’s memory.
Her recitable was notable for its authority and mastery. She has tremendous power which is directed and controlled by a clear conspectus of the music. Her splendid technique and straightforward ease gave great strength to her interpretations.The force and verve of her playing was brilliant, and her performance stunning in its power and passion.
She has amazing technique and tonal splendour, not only in the massive sectionsof the music, but in quieter, expressive passages, allied to her ability to hold the audience by the intensity of her interpretations. She brought the music alive with wonderful clarity and dramatic force. The authority with which she presente an adventurous programme was electrifying, of which passion and total dedication were the keynotes. She is am artist of the highest calbire and this was playing of the highest order.
