Notes and Editorial Reviews

Powerful visions! Tragedy, triumph, majesty, impetuosity, fantasy and razzle-dazzle- drama springs to life in bold colors!

“This is a full-blooded player, perfect for the repertory from Beethoven on. However, she also has a sharp and questing musical intelligence. Nissman never gives you a reading like everyone else's. Not only is she an individual, but she doesn't keep "her" interpretation static. She combines passion and intelligence.”

”Nissman plays superbly.”

“Listening to these recitals is to be reminded of what is now generally held to be a bygone era. With so many musicians focusing on the notes rather than what actually lies behind them, Nissman gives an object lesson in musical
Read more semantics. Time and time again she finds a way of subtly articulating important musical events in a way that illuminates the music that surrounds them.” Read less
