Ellen Sterling, Huffington Post , July 27, 2014

"When this lovely night is the setting in which there is wonderful music, it turns from merely lovely to perfect. Opening the show were virtuoso pianist Svetlana Smolina and comedian Dave Konig. They were both terrific, first -rate talent".

Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times

“…The performance (Stravinsky Les Noces) had plenty of fervor and clattering colors. Yet it was nuanced, dusky and organic. The Soloists Four dynamic Russian pianists Maxim Mogilevsky, Svetlana Smolina, Alexander Mogilevsky and Youlia Zaichkina were mesmerizing…”

AFTER MIDNIGHT SPARKLED “THE BLACK MASS”

The culmination of the evening was the performance of the “Poeme de l’Extase”, op. 54, for two pianos and a trumpet, and the “Prometheus”, op. 60, for three pianos, both pieces transcribed by Toradze, later interpreted by himself with Svetlana Smolina and Maxim Mogilevsky – an acoustical and visual sea of flames (these works were recorded by WDRWestdeutscher Rundfunk television) came very near to the messianist ideas of the composer.

Music at Monica's

Smolina selected a mix of mostly romantic era music that contained so many rapid sequences that I'm quite sure I've never heard that many notes played on a piano in one concert before. The wonderfully balanced and lively acoustic and a brand new Steinway piano helped to highlight her fiery performance. Smolina somehow managed to maintain solid melodic clarity even in through the most finger blurring passages. The engaged audience gave her a rousing standing ovation in the end, and it wasn't one of those, slowly rising "I guess I should stand because everyone else is" ovations. It was a genuine expression of appreciation to a supremely talented musician" .

iPalpiti concert in Disney Concert Hall

"Svetlana Smolina, an outstanding Russian pianist with a luxuriant tone, was the evening's soloist. She caught both the flicker of the young Sun-god and also found urgency in the flashy solo part."

Chopin Spectacular lives up to its title

"Smolina displayed full command and charmed her way through Preludes of op. 28. Playing with vigor and vitality, easily shifting from one mood to another, sure of technique and subtle phrasing.

The second part of program was devoted to Etudes and Waltzes. The pianist produced dazzling effects entirely appropriate to the genre. Smolina brought audience close to frenzy, just as dear Fryderick did in his concerts."
