Charlene Farrugia does it again! (The Sunday Times)

“One dares say that Charlene Farrugia is the crown princess of Maltese pianists, and one has to hear her to believe what she can do at such a tender age. She is precocious at the keyboard, simple, unassuming and matter-of-fact in manner. Beneath that frail, wisp exterior there is a lot of passion and determination, enthusiasm such as performers her age hardly ever have. No faltering, no nervousness:she just plunges into the execution of pieces which older and more seasoned performers treat with respect and caution. Her expressive abilities, her technical prowess and preparation, with her clear tone and application of tone colour according to work and mood, combined to project each successive piece with its own attractive qualities.”
