Lots of pyrotechnics--amazing technique--lacking maturity in her interpretation--not at the level of Trifonov in her Chopin--wish the program had been more diverse--should have played Bach--the jazz piece was awful and she is defintely not a jazz...continued

“She seems to have everything: speed, flexibility, pianistic thunder and interpretive nuance.” —The New York Times
