Re: Andrew Chan, age 13 2010 - Variations on a Paganini Theme - Bercovich:
This is an amazing performance, Andrew. Glorious technique which make me think that, in a few yearsn you will be able to play the fearsome Brahms/Paganini Vairations......

Re: Andrew Chan, age 13, 2010 - Etude op. 25 #2 - Chopin:
Really very good technique, Andrew......Yet, your performance seems a little too mechanic. I know, it's an Etude but it is not forbidden to show some expression, I wonder what Lena thinks about it.....

Re: Andrew Chan, age 13 2010 - Impromptu in Ab Major op. 29 - Chopin:
Extremely well played, Andrew. One might wish a little more tenderness in your performance but, on a pianistic point of view, this is almost perfect....

Re: Catherine Huang, age 8 2010 - Valse Lente - Merikanto:
Dear Catherine, your playing reminds me a lot of Aimi Kobayashi when she was your age. Same graceful movements, same sensitivity, same musical uinderstanding. I can only wish you the the same success and career when you grow up. In the mean time, I would love to hear more of you.......

My Dear Anna, I am so happy to hear you play this Valse with so much enthusiasm and authority. The middle part is marvelouslly expressive without being sirupy. In the coda, you show how much you have progressed technically: a real virtuoso....!
You are a true artist, I have never doubted you.......

Re: Anna Boonyanit, age 10 2009 - Allemande & Courante from French Suite II - J.S. Bach:
Bach, that was brilliantly executed. Not many can play Bach as good as you have done here.

Wonderful Bach!

Re: Nina Zhao, age 7 2009 - Piano Concerto in C Major, 1st mov. - Rollin:
I loved it....Little Nina is really extremely gifted and her musical maturity is rather unusual for her tender age. She has a lovely style, a great sense of nuances and a good technique ( a few fast double notes with no apparent problems ).
Besides, she seems to be having fun while playing. Please, Dear Lena, tell her how much
I admired her playing......and that I'm putting this video among my "favourites".....

Excellent performance, with great rythms and colors........
………………………………………………………………………………………………
Re: Alice Zhu, age 12 2010 - Rondo op. 1 #1 - Chopin:
Excellent performance, Alice. Very good style and
great technical habilities. Besides, you have a lot of courage: this work is quite long and is certainly not one of Chopin's masterpieces. But let's not be too severe: Chopin composed this piece while he was only fifteen......
………………………………………………………………………………………………
Re: Alice Zhu, age 12 2009 - Prelude & Fugue WTC I in Bb Major BWV 866, No. 21 - Bach:
Wonderful understanding of this superb work.....

Re: Amy Zeng, age 12 2010 - 2nd Piano Concerto in g minor op. 22, 1st mov. - Saint-Saens:
This is so brilliant! Is it for a competition? Are you attending a conservatory? This sounds like a professional job. I love it. High five.
………………………………………………………………………………………………
Re: Amy Zeng, age 12 2010 - 2nd Piano Concerto in g minor op. 22, 1st mov. - Saint-Saens:
A very brilliant performance, Amy. Great sonority, excellent technique and lovely musicality. Do you plan to play the three movements? Is it for a competition or a concert?.....

………………………………………………………………………………………………
Re: Miranda Shum, age 11 2010 - Fantasia in d minor - Mozart:
A splendid performance, Miranda, very mature and wonderfully controlled. I like the way you stop and wait when the mood changes, which happens often in that work. That proves how well
you understand this Fantaisie......and how well it has been explained to you by your marvelous Professor, Lena Grozman.....

Re: S.Bernstein Birds

Hi, I really enjoyed your video of the Bernstein Birds! However, I can't find the score in my country. Could you send the sheet music to me, actually I own several rare but interesting piano piece which can exchange with you. …

Re: Nina Zhao, age 7 2009 - Prelude in c minor, BWV 934 - Bach

“…I am amazed by the awesome sonority control of such a little girl.This rather "abstract" work sings from the first to the last note. Nina has a wonderful artistic instinct and an uncommon intelligence of phrasing.

Thank you, Dear Lena, for taking such great care of this splendid young musician and sharing her talent with us.......”

“…Dear teacher

Thanks for your love & your student video really help me a lot in my piano performance thanks”

Re: Amy Zeng, age 11 - Moment Musicaux - Rachmaninoff

“It is a bit slow but then, it gains in "grandeur".Besides, Amy's excellent sonority control gives to each theme it's importance like in some Preludes. This is a very difficult technical
achievement and, for an eleven year old pianist, she does that exceptionnally well....”
………………………………………………………………………………………………

Re: Anna Boonyanit, age 10 - Sonata op. 10 - Clementi

“One of my favourite young pianist.....Anna is so remarkably musical that she "lives" the scores more than she plays it. Expression is everywhere:
in her playing, of course, but also in her gestures and facial expressions.......I firmly beleive in her....”

Re: Eileen Lu, age 15 - Allegro de Concerto - Granados
