Mariko Anraku reviews
"A Manifestation of Grace and Elegance"
- NY Times
"She realizes and projects the varying fragrances of each piece, and does so with the probing nuances of a master Kyoto player." —Fanfare Magazine
"You hear an artist wrapped up in expressing the composer, not her own whims. I can't think of another artist who does it quite like this.

"Blessed be he who paired Mariko Anraku with the harp. It comes to life in her hands, it sings again as it did for the bards of yore. This very elegant and beautiful woman, this masterful artist of intelligence and wit, gave a breathtaking perfromnace at Weill Hall under the auspices of Pro Musicis." —New York Concert Review (Recital at Weill Recital Hall, Carnegie Hall)
