Strathmore Music in the Mansion Series
This young Czech pianist brings a level of poetry and passion to the keyboard that makes critics sit up and notice. The Washington Post wrote, "Not only the artistic originality and romantic fervor that one ought to expect from a first-rate pianist, but also a remarkably vivid, almost palpable sense of the life." And the Chicago Sun-Times raved "An exciting performance [of the] most arresting quality: utter fluidity, infinitely shaded depth, full of shadow and color."
