  • From a recent concert review

“Captured the essence of Schumann's expressive soul, creating fresh and lush music through exquisite tempo choices, phrasing and sophisticated dynamics.”

- Classical Net / May 2013 -

“A terrifyingly good pianist, whose enviably good taste becomes even more moving in Schumann.

Rodriguez's pianism is of a quality rarely heard. ”
