"Adding to the ecclectic program, the personnality of a generous artist can be seen in the reflexion of this recital. In 2010, she is one of only two french artists who participate in the International Certificate Piano Artist, with a series of concerts taking place in Taïwan, Palm Beach, Madera, Brussels and Paris.
The audience attending the recital yesterday will surely be impatient to hear the pianist again in the future" Le Quotidien, 2015
"The artist offered a recital of great quality, with a precise and emotional introduction of the Seasons from Tchaikovsky, contrasting with a powerful interpretation of Liszt, full of character." La Nouvelle République, 2009
