"We had Rudolf last night and he was outstanding. My audience was so happy with his performance. He is an exceptional pianist, playing with ease and perfection. He is also very talented in mixing his [other music] with his pieces. We enjoyed his humor, his knowledge of the great composers and his wonderful rapport with the audience."Becky President MCCA
"Rudolf is a very versatile performer with exceptional control of the piano. He switches easily form a serious classical sound to the light and entertaining moods of Gershwin. Rudolf is just plain fun to watch. He has a wonderful ability to relate to the audience. Each piece offers great dynamic scale – the audience was entranced by the sudden contrasts: dramatic at break-neck speed then lyrical with a sensitive and romantic sound."Betsy Hardie President No. SLO County Concert Association View All Presenters Feedback
