Pianistic Perfection

[…] Her hugely challenging programme required her to surmount every pianistic demand. This she did with ease. Her Haydn revealed a delicacy of touch and a finely-judged legato, whereas the taxing Klavierstücke by Brahms showed her ability to range from smooch romanticism, through complex agitato and springing rhythm to a resounding finale.
Her final item was the magnificent Scriabin Third Sonata, at last coming to be recognized as one of the towering masterpieces of late 19th century piano music. All four movements received a performance far beyond that which one would expect in so young a performer. The rocking love-song-like Andante moved into the final Presto with an assurance and power which spoke of insight and technical skill as impressive as they were unassuming.
