"...Our expectations were high and Chelsea Guo’s debut proved to be special. It was one of the highlights of this season. She is an impressive pianist capable of creating a special atmosphere, bringing her audience close to her in a very intimate manner. Her performance revealed a reverence for the style of every composer. ...A sensitive and compelling performance. Debussy’s Images Oubliees concluded the first half, with a magical rendering of this unusual and unknown repertoire. The performance was imaginative, mysterious, and magical, for me the highlight of the first half. After intermission she emerged as an impressive singer ..and (the) performance was powerful and magical. She is without a doubt a storyteller, a great, poised, and charming singer with astonishing communicating skills. Hers was truly an unforgettable performance and Luis Urbina proved to be the ideal partner.
Chelsea Guo is a special and original talent with a tremendous intellect behind, she is someone to watch and nurture."
