Brilliant youngster does it again (The Times)

“Few of those present at the latest lunchtime recital at Sala Isouard were left in doubt as to the tremendous amount of talent displayed by 16-year old pianist Charlene Farrugia. She remains charming yet confident, has an air of almost child-like simplicity and appeal, yet is a youngster of great determination who works hard and obtains very good results. Even more resounding was the reaction to the last and completely different yet equally difficult work. All the more admirable was the pianist’s achievements when, after the recital it turned out that the young lady had only a week in which to learn Villa-Lobos’ devilishly difficult Dansa do Indio Branco, n.4 from Ciclo Brasileiro.”
