“Her playing was not of the merely spectacular variety; it was a performance which showed her complete realization of the work. An exciting interpretation in all respects, a contemporary and vivid encounter with Brahms.”
(Brahms Piano Concerto # 1, with the Berlin Radio Orchestra)
Der Spiegel

 “She presented herself as a Mozart interpreter of the highest class. Her playing was of the finest, most colorful and subtle quality. She created poetry on the piano, with mellowness and sweetness of sound and with intimacy that brought to us a Mozart in his most profound self.”
(Mozart Concerto in D major, the Coronation, with
the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra)
Der Tagesspiegel

“Songful and sensitive, with technical finesse and festive exuberance”
(A piano recital, Schubert, Chopin, Rachmaninoff, Kabalevsky,
Alice Tully Hall, New York)
The New York Times 

“She brought beyond a keen understanding of style, an intensity and a flair for the dramatic that added the impact of a personality both dramatic and delicate. A poetic nature that she made apparent at every opportunity by color and nuance.”
(Haydn Piano Concerto in D major, Strauss Burlesque with
the New York Philharmonic Orchestra).
New York Post

“We were transfixed from the first note. She is a true musician of the sort that grasps the music in full embrace, extracting from it its very essence.”
(Piano recital, Bach, Schumann, Debussy, Salle Gaveau, Paris)
Le Figaro

“Concentrating on pearl-like brilliance, she mastered all the dreaded jumps at sharp tempo, and presented the sudden contrasts with poise and light elegance. She was an ideal interpreter for this piece.
(Prokofieff Piano Concerto # 3 with the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra)
Sueddeutsche Zeitung

“Beautifully poised, she performed the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 24 with classical restraint. She produced a deep tone for melodic line. She shaped thematic materials and shaded dynamics expressively.”
(Mozart Concerto in C minor with the Ohio Chamber Orchestra)
Cleveland Plain Dealer

“Her fingers can withstand cruel and unusual punishment and still fly about the keyboard with the greatest of ease charging through the fierce demands of the Prokofieff’s Sixth Sonata as thought it were a beginner’s exercise. There were numerous other traits to admire in her playing. Exceptionally graceful phrasing. A magical moment.
(A piano recital, Bach, Schumann, Prokofieff,
the Terrace Theater, Washington DC)
The Washington Post

“The young pianist achieved fantastic success. She proved herself as a pianist of the highest order. One rarely finds an artist capable of such an ecstatic vision who can still retain the necessary discipline.
(Brahms Piano Concerto # 1, Berlin Radio Orchestra)
Berliner Zeitung

“She is a pianist with a big technique, capable of enormous musical sensitivity. A performance that was fluent and exciting. With poignant majesty”
(An all Beethoven piano recital, Alice Tully Hall, New York)
