ERI

YAMAMOTO

“Yamamoto is excellent in producing tones with lyrical melody lines. She has mastered her own modes of expression through her great facility in various piano techniques.”

– Tami Nodaira, “Ongaku no Tomo” magazine, 2018

 

“Eri had impeccable technique, of course, but what I found most satisfying and encouraging was her sensitivity to disparate. She found orchestral colors in the keyboard and most importantly allowed her instrument to breathe phrase, and sing with my clarinet for a real feeling of chamber music conversations. “

– Richard Stoltzman, the internationally known clarinetist
