  • She played this Wednesday a mesmerizing recital at the wonderful Schubertiada Vilabertran in Spain. A great lady of the piano, old school. An unforgettable recital.

  • So rightly honoured, for Mrs. Imogen Cooper not only plays the piano most profoundly (especially Schubert), but also so eloquently explains in her lectures the world behind the notes and what goes on in the mind preparing as well as playing.
    Congratulations.
