The reviews from Beatrice Rana’s recital tour are pouring in and they are all 5 stars! Check out this top praise from this weekend’s New York Times on her Boston debut.

“As if the list of stellar pianists still in their 20s and early 30s weren’t long enough, here’s another name to add to it. Beatrice Rana, 26, should probably already be on the list, to be fair, with a handful of strong recordings including a ‘Goldberg’ Variations that I named as one of the releases of the year in 2017.

But she’s only now making her way around the recital circuit, with a debut to come on March 12 at Carnegie Hall. I heard the program she’ll play there this past Wednesday, as part of The Celebrity Series of Boston. Agosti’s transcription of Stravinsky’s ‘The Firebird’ had all the virtuosic flair that you’d expect, but never for its own sake; Ravel’s ‘Miroirs’ were as polished as pearls, each blessed by uncommon sensitivity of touch; and her Chopin Op. 25 Etudes always intrigued. One to watch.”
