Mira Yevtich did not only demonstrate a technical brilliance but also a moving interpretation, without reserve, that one finds only in the rarest of talents. An exceptional interpretation of composers including Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky and Scriabin by a musician that evidently knows the soul of the music”.

The Sydney Morning Herald, Australia wrote: “With the passing of years it is not often that one has the opportunity to listen to the sublime performances of Mira Yevtich. Her virtuosity and education reveal a rare talent, energy and love for music. Her repertoire includes a vast program of classic and modern composers such as Bach, Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, Schubert, Schumann, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev, Jevtic and Rachmaninoff to mention a few. We are proud and delighted with the opportunity to ‘steal’ this exceptional artist from the European concert halls and wish it will be possible to listen to her again in the years to come”.

‘Le Soir’, Belgium wrote: “Mira Yevtich’s interpretation of Mussorgsky enriches the soul and inspire to higher levels that one believed unattainable”.
