Esther Budiardjo reviews

"... displayed a most professional command of the piano in shimmering cascades of passionate, romantic phrasing with mature, virtuoso technique." The Islander (Sanibel, FL) "Budiardjo lost no time in proclaiming that she is a formidable virtuoso and an artist of depth and versatility…she has the complete digital and rhythmic composure and the rare interpretive concentration that enable her to encompass any shade of tempo or accentuation with unflappable clarity and perception of architecture. Her masterly account had a mature grandeur that placed it on the level of some of the greatest pianists in memory." American Record Guide "Esther Budiardjo belongs to the elect pianists of our age… Budiardjo’s playing was fabulous, in the literal sense of ?you wouldn’t have believed it if you hadn’t heard it with your own ears’… Her playing summoned laughter and tears; made the mind work, the spirit soar." The Boston Globe "... it became clear that it was perfect for this lively, but gently scored Mozart [Piano Concerto #23]. Budiardjo's understated elegance, a rare commodity these days, proved deeply moving." The State (Columbia SC )
