Notes & Reviews:

A debut full of lust for life and soulful feelings! Russian repertoire suits her very well at the moment, because she has a very personal approach to it, concludes Claire Huangci. Not just because of the virtuosic vigor that the dainty pianist brings to her playing, but because of the wealth of images and emotions. Concertgoers who have seen the young Chinese-American perform live will understand at once. It is simply that she has a special energy, powerful yet flexible, with which she can give intelligent context and nimble form to the smallest detail or fling wonderful arches across time and space. No surprise, then, that she decided on "The Sleeping Beauty" as the title of her CD debut featuring music by Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev: the selections from the ballets Sleeping Beauty and Romeo and Juliet admirably capture the youthful freshness of a pianist in her early twenties.
