Reviews

“Chang is a complete package as a player — technically assured, colorfully expansive, subtly probing, boldly commanding.”

Jeffrey Kaczmarczyk

Grand Rapids Press

“Chang wasted little time in demonstrating her credentials, the isolated opening episode affording her the opportunity of showing a left hand of enviable alacrity and pure intonation and a bowing arm that navigated strings and created varied dynamics with utter fluency.”
