Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Her performances merged a profound comprehension of musical purposes with rare lyric fervor. And to each work, she brought not only a lovely tone and immaculate technique, but a deep sense of personal conviction."

- The Washington Post

"...plenty of Romantic sweep and arching lyricism...unflagging stamina and bravura."

- The New York Times

"Walsh is a performer of great honesty and integrity, a pianist with superb technique that never gets abused for vainglorious displays and which is consistently and effectively applied to the service of great and lesser music alike. . . . [Beethoven’s] Sonata in E major, Op. 109, one of the sublime
Read more masterpieces in all of music, got a performance worthy of its status - lyrical, contemplative, powerful and very moving."
