ABOUT YE-JIN HAN
“...the most remarkable aspect of her playing was its relaxed, casual effortlessness. Her tone was pure, lovely and expressive in all registers, at any speed. Taking her virtuosity entirely for granted, she never used it for show or effect, turning even the unabashed bravura pieces into music...”
- Edith Eisler, New York Concert Review
