Genius, it has been said, knows itself. If that is so, then Rebecca Penneys must know how remarkable she is.

  • Cleveland Plain Dealer

Along with power, she has dynamic control and an inborn facility of phrasing; and she possesses an awareness of architecture that gives a very special significance and purpose to all her interpretations.

  • Los Angeles Times

Penneys moves like a dancer, has the strength of an Olympic gymnast and plays the piano like a tamed whirlwind.

  • New York Daily News

She possesses a daredevil technique and the sort of charismatic stage presence that demands attention.

  • Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

Her performance was nothing short of revelatory.”

  • San Francisco Examiner

Her performance was rich, beautiful and touching. She plays with brilliance, grace and joy. Possessing a strong passion for her music, she has the power to deeply penetrate the heart.”

  • Mainichi News, Tokyo

Miss Penneys has exceptional tonal control as well as a massive technique. She can caress a phrase or thunder a passage with equal appropriateness.”

  • Philadelphia Inquirer

“Together they work magic.”

  • Rochester Times-Union

Musical sensitivity and brilliant technique were everywhere evident.”

  • Buffalo News

The Trio played with big tone, supple phrasing, energy, and a romantic ensemble in which individualism and teamwork were balanced.”

  • The New Yorker

This is a delightful team, with a collective personality that seems to sum up the joy of making music with each other, which, after all, is the essence of chamber music.”

  • Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
