Her albums with Naxos, ArchiMusic, and BMop Sound have received critical acclaims and won the prestigious Golden Melody Award for “Best Classical Album of the Year”.  Pianist Magazine has called her latest Rachmaninoff album as an “essential listening for Rachmaninoff admirers”. Renowned also as a presenter, curator, educator and a passionate classical music promoter, she is the founder and artistic director of renowned Philadelphia Young Pianists’ Academy (PYPA) and serves on the piano faculty at Temple University in Philadelphia.
