"Yeeha Chiu played (the Grieg Piano Concerto) with a clear, crisp tone and a warm sense of both the romantic and nationalistic moods that prevail in the work. It was fine pianism."

"Her performance (of the Waldenstein Sonata) might have been a brilliant technical feat - as it surely was. But in addition, her feeling for the mood, the alternating violence and serenity, and the spirituality of this work were evident."
