press quotes

"The first notes were enough to make any listener sit up, so mature were her sound and phrasing….Her highest tones were true, her runs impeccable, her vibrato was warm and sympathetic.  She also played with feeling." -Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"This young artist from Seattle displayed solid technique, attractive tone and obvious devotion to her art.  For one of Mendelssohn's most lyrical works, Yuri exhibited equal measures of classical poise and refined romantic passion." -Greenville Times

"the Moët Trio... in Schubert's E flat major Piano Trio... was technically and interpretatively outstanding." The Strad Magazine

"The youthful Moët players did not fail to impress with their performance of Maurice Ravel’s Trio in A minor. - The Boston Musical Intelligencer
