Top prize winners in, respectively, the Geneva International Competition, the Brahms International Competition, and the World Piano Competition, they have been lauded by critics as “versatile, intelligent, and deeply musical” (Washington Post) and “tender, lyrical, loaded with personality” (Atlanta Constitution).
