“…impeccable phrase-shaping, a crystalline sound…”

-The New York Times

 

“Admirable technique…”

-The Washington Post

 

“She showed a nice bluesy romantic touch, temperament, a sense of colour…She also wrote her own cadenza…and the surprise was enough to snap your head back.”

-The Vancouver Sun

 

“With grace and refinement, Lorraine Min unveiled a thoughtfully conceived program…a potent package of richly inventive inspiration.”

-Adelaide Advertiser (Australia)

 

“…the phrases rose and fell impulsively…The technical and musical skill required to bring these works off with the kind of finesse, bravura and brilliance Min displayed, boggles the mind and amazes the ear…she sorted the complex cross rhythms into elegant, elaborate, richly accoutered songs and breathless vistas of tone-painting…Min creates the kind of musical experience which transcends instrument and player both…this performance was unforgettable.”

-Halifax Chronicle Herald

 

“Her program reveals her strengths not only as an accomplished technician but as a poet of the highest caliber. Emotional depth and intuitive brilliance inform every note of her playing, giving these pieces an immediacy that is missing from many performances.”

-Erie Daily Times

 

“Lorraine Min not only delivered an astounding rendition of Mozart’s work (Piano Concerto in C Major K. 503), but also played with her own stylistic edge which complimented the work nicely. Her precision and purity of sound were matched only by the grace with which she played.”

-Dalhousie Gazette

 

“Her performance was nothing less than brilliant.”

-Music in Victoria

 

“It was a sterling evening of music-making that began with a remarkable performance by Canadian pianist Lorraine Min of the Beethoven Third Concerto. In appearance, Min is slender and elegant. But in performance she was aggressive in the forte parts and highly expressive in the piano. Each arpeggio had shape and precision. Her playing is dynamic, but never lacks emotion. While she was riveting in the fast movements, it was the second movement Largo where Min played her best. At the end, the audience responded with a standing ovation.”

-Windsor Star

 

“They gave a prolonged standing ovation to pianist Lorraine Min for her performance of Saint-Saens’ Concerto no. 4 in C Minor…I was caught up in watching Min’s hands flying on the keyboard and “virtuosic moves” in the final movement that I didn’t notice anything derogatory about the composition – I just enjoyed the beauty of the music…Min had a very commanding presence on the stage, and even in one small portion where she played with just one hand, her music was very powerful.”
