• Woman at the New Piano is an album with a surely cosmic purpose… Another work that can, and should, become a staple of recitals and programs… Stellar performances, usual fine Reference Recordings sound throughout, informative liner notes and a most varied and energetic program make “Woman at the New Piano” a clear winner and a new favorite here.

    Don Clark, Pictures on Silence
  • An exceptional recording of newly composed piano works… Shpachenko’s passionate rendering of the material unifies it on this special recording. Clearly a labour of love.

    Ron Schepper, Textura Magazine
  • Nadia Shpachenko plays excellently through the whole album… If there’s a downside to this release, it’s that we might start expecting a new one every year. Nadia Shpachenko has done heroic work here, and the composers provide stimulating listening.

    Brian Reinhart, MusicWeb International
  • Woman at the New Piano is a generous helping of new piano music by four contemporary composers covering a wide range of feelings, moods and techniques. Ms. Shpachenko and Genevieve Feiwen Lee have skillfully combined to produce a memorable recording.

    Paul Muller, New Classic LA
  • [Nadia Shpachenko] impresses very much as a pianist with a light, crisp touch and a way of keeping the music flowing very cleanly… the execution sounds flawless… the music is so infectious… A very engaging set.

    Brian Olewnick, Just Outside
  • Nadia Shpachenko collaborated in the creation of these works, giving her an emotional investment and empathy with them. She conveys that empathy with sure, insightful delivery.

    Ralph Graves, Off Topic'd and WTJU
  • Pianist Shpachenko brings strength to wide range of living composers… Shpachenko herself is a strong player, with a touch that gives weight and solidity even at low dynamics… Eminently worthwhile concert from Shpachenko and her fellow composers.

    George Grella, New York Classical Review

Multiple GRAMMY® nominated pianist Nadia Shpachenko has performed extensively in solo recitals and with orchestras in major venues across North America, Europe and Asia. Described by critics as a “truly inspiring and brilliant pianist… spellbinding in sensitivity and mastery of technique,” Nadia enjoys bringing into the world things that are outside the box – powerful pieces that often possess unusual sonic qualities or instrumentation. She performs on piano, toy piano, harpsichord, and percussion in concerts that often feature recitation, electronics and multimedia.
