The performance had plenty of fervor...yet it was nuanced, dusky and organic...Mesmerizing.
The New York Times
Smolinas defining of the lyrical aspects in the music she played made her performance cherishable...
Los Angeles Times
[The] program was devoted to Etudes and Waltzes...the pianist produced dazzling effects entirely appropriate to the genre..Smolina brought the audience close to frenzy.
