Lilya Zilberstein

 

Chicago Symphony

 

“Its youthful zest [Prokofiev Concerto No. 3] was displayed to the hilt by Zilberstein… More impressive was the graceful, almost effortless navigation of the music’s maddening alternation of the fast and furious with the soulfully lyrical.”

CHICAGO TRIBUNE

 

 

Milwaukee Symphony

 

“Lilya Zilberstein opened the program with the best performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 that I have ever heard.”

Rhode Island Philharmonic

 

"... Lilya Zilberstein ... made the score sound fresh and compelling ... she can light a piano on fire and never lose control. She tore through the Tchaikovsky [Piano Concerto No. 1] with blazing octave runs and sparkling passage work, getting a big sound when called for and knowing when just a caress was enough."

PROVIDENCE JOURNAL

 


St. Louis Symphony

 

“[Zilberstein] is a fabulously gifted artist.”

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH

 

 

San Antonio Symphony

 

“Verdict: If there’s a finer Rachmaninoff pianist in the world nowadays, I don’t know who it might be.”

 

SAN ANTONIO EXPRESS-NEWS

 

 

Honolulu Symphony

 

“The final two movements [Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 2] were stunning: the third, a tour de force of power and brilliance, the second a tour de force of the soul… Zilberstein met Rachmaninoff's legendary demands for virtuosity and tremendous strength coupled with tender delicacy.”
