“She has managed to emancipate her creative gift and produced charismatic and compelling performances notable for their freedom, fire and complexity.”
Andrew Ball, 2018
"She possesses an outstanding talent, comparable to method acting, to go deep into each work she studies. She analyzes the history around the world, its programme, stylistic peculiarities of the music language to creat an all-around map of images and emotions. Most importantly she possesses a great variety of technical skills to translate her findings to the audience to smallest details. This turns her playing into an emotional and intellectual spectacle that stays in the room long after it ends"
