GLOBAL  REVIEWS
IRAKLION, GREECE:

“It is easy to call him a ‘phenomenon,’ -- a ‘naturally talented genius.’ Behind all the incredible musical maturity of Frederick Moyer, there is a colossal will power and self-control that has guided him with confidence to his high goal.”

VERONA, ITALY:

“The shy, boyish face of American pianist Frederick Moyer belies his mature musicality, his pronounced expressive versatility, and his readiness to shape the music with a good deal of elasticity of hand and mind. He inaugurated the present season and left the audience in Villafranca pleasantly impressed with his gifts.”

L'ARENA

TALLINN, ESTONIA:

“Frederick Moyer from the USA impressed us as a very fine, mature musician and pianist. From the first note of the seldom heard Sonata in F by Haydn, there was clarity. Moyer's mind works in an exemplary manner, the self-control is perfect, the spectrum of feelings is rich, the fingers nimble, the pedal being used quite sparingly.”

“A profound musicality, reflective, is evident in the presentation of the Paganini/Liszt, and it resounds with health beneath the fingers of this well-trained pianist.”

SOUTH MORNING CHINA POST
