Notes & Reviews:

Silver Medal winner Beatrice Rana was praised for her "intensely personalized music-making" (Dallas Morning News) that "had an electrical current running through virtually every measure" (Cleveland Plain Dealer). Already a rising star, Rana was named "One to Watch" by International Piano magazine just before her Cliburn appearance. In addition to a tour of the US arranged by the Cliburn, highlights of Rana's 2013 - 14 season include invitations to perform with the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre Lamoureux in Paris' Théâtre des Champs-Elysées. This live recording of her competition performances features works by Schumann, Ravel and Bartók.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The 20-year-old Rana, who also won the coveted Audience Award, offers refined performances: a cautious but polished Schumann, an articulate and atmospheric Ravel, and a confident, percussive Bartok. Rana's Symphonic Etudes shows immaculate poise and thoughtfulness. She cultivates a beautiful, poetic tone with an orchestral touch, evident in Etudes 7 and 10. Her refusal to forgo expression for speed is admirable. Her precise execution contributes to articulate repetitions and pulsing rhythms. By far my favorite set in this program, Out of Doors unleashes brilliance and imagination. The sophistication and maturity manifested in this program bodes well for her career.
