"an extraordinary performance," "Over and over I was astounded," "Belsky does not miss any of the excitement," "She also uses a huge dynamic range from barely audible to thunderous -- very much in keeping with the work."
“Outstanding performance on Friday’s PianoForte Salon Series! Thanks to you, we had one of our biggest, most enthusiastic audiences ever... I’m sure audiences will be talking about it for a long time to come.”
“What a marvelous concert and extraordinary playing... [your performance of ] The Rite of Spring" was wild and eclectically delicious!”
“a lively and engaging program”
"Amoroso" from Prokofiev's ballet "Cinderella" painted pretty textures and featured a marvelously slow crescendo that built up to glorious, big sound... In the performance of (Vladimir Leyetchkiss' transcrpition of Stravinsky's Rite of Spring) there was lots to like. Belsky had sharp contrasts between a very light touch and a big, hard sound. She realized the harsh yet invigorating music with crispness and precision. And she knows how to make raucous sound ravishing."
“Your performances were extraordinary both for their musical insight and for their quality... every work was performed with confidence and elan.”
