Reviews of Concerts & Recordings

"Played brilliantly [with] the fluency of fine poetry...she certainly exhibited all the attributes of greatness: expressive sensitivity, power, facility, and stage presence."                          Paul Somers, New Jersey Star Ledger

 

"Ms. Otaki demonstrates all the characteristics of a born chamber musician with a highly developed aesthetic sense. She securely assumes the lead when her part calls for it or seamlessly blends into the musical texture when the work requires a tightly intergrated ensemble.                                        Ruch Muzyczny

 

"Fine sense of proportion and musicianship....a tribute to chamber playing of the highest order"            
                                                                                                            
The Washington Post

"Brilliant and sensitive."                                                                    
Badische Zeitung, Freiburg
