"Pianist Alla Nikitskayas playing is notable for consistently lovely tone, polished technique, and perceptive musicality. Her interpretations are thoughtfully conceived and well paced: she never slights detail but doesnt let it overwhelm the total picture. She can play with great passion—in the Schumann Fantasie, for example—and with dreamy or turbulent Impressionism, as in her Debussy group. The Rachmaninoff pieces are shaped with lyrical fluidity, and her Chopin and Liszt transmit romantic poetry or ardor as required." Fanfare Magazine.
