Washington Post Review

The Washington Post offers a splendid review of a recent concert with the Lysander Trio at The Smithsonian Steinway Series:

...the pianist, Liza Stepanova, could not have played more eloquently to this [restored Steinway Grand]’s richly voiced strengths, balancing crystal-clear articulation, rock-solid authority and a very Russian sense of rhapsody in her phrasing... It’s not often that a chamber performance makes a listener long to hear all the ensemble members in the big-concerto repertoire, but this one certainly did.
— Joe Banno for The Washington Post
