“Robinson made handy work of the Tchaikovsky showpiece [Rococo Variations], which calls for everything in the cellist’s bag of tricks, from thumb position acrobatics to high harmonics.”

Baltimore recital

 

“The rest of the sonata [Shostakovich] was equally impressive; a first movement that was insouciant, a soulful slow movement and a final one in which her playing spoke eloquently throughout, particularly at whisper-soft levels.”

“[Robinson] was memorable throughout the concert, from the anxious curlicues in the first movement of Zwilich’s Piano Trio, through her ascent to icy heights at the end of Arvo Pärt’s “Mozart-Adagio”, to an assertive yet natural rendition of the tender cello line in the Adagio of Brahms’s Piano Trio in B (Op. 8).”
