CD: The Whole Note
“Andreeva is a gifted performer, researcher and teacher. Her program choices are deliberate, balanced and artful. Her approach is methodical, yet inspired… [she] builds her phrases with care and balance. Andreeva is a deeply thoughtful artist and definitely worth hearing. ” —Alex Baran

CD: Fanfare
“Natalia Andreeva is a thoughtful pianist who has already impressed the present writer several years ago. The recording is generally good but can feel soft-edged at times. The playing needs no such qualifying. Natalia Andreeva is a highly talented, intelligent pianist who here offers a most rewarding program in superbly musical interpretations given with a rock-solid technique. This is music to get one’s teeth into, superbly presented. ” —Colin Clarke

“Breath-taking … for the breadth of insight Natalia Andreeva brings to these scores. Ustvolskaya has a voice all of her own. There is a Webernian concision to her expressive means; nothing is wasted, nothing is frivolous. Strongly recommended as a reminder of the sheer power music can wield. ” —Colin Clarke
