"One of the best violinists in the world had once again shown her immense ability and her stirring playing in Bad Kissingen and presented young talents from her country - to the enthusiasm of the audience." (Saale-Zeitung, 18.06.2023, Gerhild Ahnert)

[on Cesar Franck's Violin Sonata in A major]: "They began the second movement very pronouncedly, the violin almost gruffly, creating a wild and rousing dance.
