Reviews from concerts.
"Ana Rodriguez, a faculty member at Miami Dade College North Campus and a pianist who has concertized throughout Europe and the Americas, was fully equal to the concerto’s formidable demands. She brought a plethora of pianistic firepower to the outer movements. In the first movement’s lengthy cadenza, her big-boned octaves rattled the hall. At the movement’s exciting climax, the audience instantly broke into applause. By contrast, the softness of her playing in the second movement exquisitely dovetailed the beautiful string lines, shaped eloquently by Brooks-Bruzzese. Rodriguez captured the relentless, thrusting strokes of the finale with precision and panache. Maestro Brooks-Bruzzese evoked multi-hued playing from the entire ensemble, the snappy percussion battery and lush strings taking special honors." Lawrence Budmen Ft Lauderdale Connex
Composer Thomas Sleeper described her recital as" beautiful recital this evening by Ana Lourdes Rodriguez at the Bede. An entire evening of new musics - all beautifully performed powerful and nuanced - gorgeous voicing and flow. A rich performance of "Marina". AND happy to hear her own composition - very strong! An excellent evening "
