Review acclaims pianist Alexandria Le, 2011 Pro Musicis winner

January 25, 2012

“Alexandria Le is a warm, animated, outgoing, confident, hypertalented pianist whose greatest asset is her incomparable power to communicate.”

 – Michael Rocha in the Boston Musical Intelligencer.

“From the first moment of the concert, it was abundantly clear that Le embodies the spirit of sharing that is at the core of the Pro Musicis ethos. … The program was highly varied and downright kaleidoscopic, featuring both familiar and lesser-know works that were consistently challenging for the performer, and occasionally so for the audience. Four works in total: two rarely heard and two old chestnuts, utilizing fantasies as programmatic bookends.

“Opening with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fantasy in g minor, Op. 77 … Le demonstrated both grace and power, playing deep in the keys and tossing off the more technically demanding passages with aplomb.

“Le deftly handled this physically and intellectually demanding music (Ligeti’s Musica Ricercata) with focused playing and unwavering concentration, drawing us into Ligeti’s multi-hued soundscape with a spell-binding rendition.

“Overall, it was a truly exhilarating journey. Le did herself proud and was rewarded with a well-deserved standing-O.”
