An ame-inspiring triumph of mind over matter.

Raoul Sosa's Concerto for the left hand communicates great emotional strength.

A leader and a masterly conductor.

Mr. Sosa's "golden left hand" moved freely across the keyboard, as he overwhelmed the Japanese audience who was deeply touched by his strong and amazing performance.

Sosa performance excites audience, draws encores… But it was the Moussorgsky that brought down the house, and the enthusiasm was such that Sosa was recalled for two encores.

Sosa performance beautiful… His performance of the Bach-Busoni Prelude and Fugue in D major, Rachmaninoff s Variations on a Theme of Chopin, was among the most intensely beautiful musical experiences this critic has enjoyed in a long time.
