Newspaper reviews


“Jonathan Oshry tastefully opened the evening with Bach's A minor English Suite with a flighty, zestful performance that was well-shaped and controlled...“ – review of Wigmore Hall performance

“Oshry produced one of his best performances in the solo part of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No 3 in C Minor… The playing was masculine without transgressing a sense of Classical scale, the interpretation nicely balanced between exuberance and repose; the articulation in scale and arpeggio passages was always clean.” – The Citizen

“Saint-Saëns Piano Concerto No 2 … Without doubt, this was the best performance of this difficult concerto I have ever heard.” – Sunday Tribune

“The best performance of the evening was undoubtedly Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit in which Oshry captured most effectively the variety of textures and wonderful atmosphere in the music, particularly in Le Gibet, as well as the demanding technical virtuosity of Scarbo.” - Natal Mercury

“Liszt Mephisto Waltz No 1 and the encore, Prokofiev’s Toccata, were solidly exuberant.” – The Star

“Oshry’s performance of the demanding Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini was nothing short of dazzling.” – Saturday Paper

“Violin/Piano duo performance – What sets these two apart is a precocious sensitivity and musicality, an ability to interpret what lies behind the notes on the page and a maturity of understanding far beyond their years. Technical virtuosity goes without saying, of course.” – Sunday Times
