to the age of five when she began lessons with her mother. At 13 she was
awarded a scholarship to the Juilliard School and two years later she made her

impressed by Ms. Taffel’s exciting style at the piano- her “energy and daring”,
her “strength and grace” and her “powerfully emotional” interpretations of the
Romantic repertoire. (The Oregonian).
