Montreal Gazette

"Ross showed a solid commitment to Mozart and his music. Where many pianists have merely glossed over these works or ignored them entirely, he has taken the time to prepare and thoughtfully organize them. His playing is filled with all sorts of inflections that supply personality and vigor."

The New York Times

The New York Times

"Yaron Ross ... is a pianist who listens to himself and to the music while playing. Bach's
English Suite No. 6, for example, was spirited and scrupulously articulated. Similarly
precise and rhythmically pristine was Beethoven's Sonata (Op. 31, No.1)."
