Dazzling performance (The Times)

“Charlene Farrugia and the MPO did not fail to deliver. This still young and very dynamic pianist has matured a lot and gets even better. She has always had it in her and while playing more brilliantly and intelligently, she has not lost touch of simple charm and warm rapport, whether with the orchestra or the public. Her cast-iron concentration never became a rigid exercise, but was warm and flexible. She played with a determined ease, being as strong in the sharply marked brilliant passages as she was tender in the more reflective ones.”
