Lada Valesova Banner

Wanderer Fantasia – a targeting work, which even Schubert himself could not play. Lada performed it with gargantuan sonic splurges with a towering integrity and I sensed an ever-deepening response to Schubert’s shattering sadness, which in Lada’s hands, never sounded self-indulgent or congested. Her playing, exuberant and spell bound by sheer panache captured the energy and lyricism of the work, culminating in furious finale. This was a marvel of sonic and technical brilliance.
