Reviews

“Pianist Lukas Vondracek is the master of perfectly voiced textures” (The Straits Times, June 2015)

“27-year-old Czech pianist Lukas Vondráček and conductor Anu Tali collaborated on a brilliant reading of Rachmaninoff’s “Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini,” bringing out inner voices and colors that made this work seem reborn. There were ripples of humor, stretches of passion and intense musicality that delineated the kind of music-making generally relegated to the best of chamber performances.” (Herald-Tribune (Sarasota), November 2013)

“Lukáš Vondráček drew the finest possible lines and added bell-like sounds as soft as butter, allowing the disparate compositional elements to become part of a greater whole. It comes as no surprise that this young musician is recognized as one of the greatest pianistic talents of our times.” (Stuttgarter Zeitung, April 2012)
