“Angela is an exceptionally gifted pianist, with masterful technique and a deep interpretive intelligence… Her performance of the Oiseaux Exotiques, a virtual concerto for piano, was a riveting example of her prodigious ability to transcend the traps of the notation itself and create a highly personal, yet totally authentic result. Angela’s music-making is not just virtuosic, it is memorable.”
