CONCERTS: 

… an extraordinarily sensitive soloist on the fortepiano
Die Rheinphalz, Germany

… she knows how to restore for us the genuine and original grace of the period
Wiesbadener Kurier, Germany

… an astonishing breadth of dynamic variation…  she created fascinating musical landscapes of mountains and gorges…
in exemplary fashion, with extremely telling, detailed phrasing
(Concert in Mozart’s House)  Salzburger Nachrichten, Austria

… a supremely sensitive soloist… she played in a free, almost impressionistic way, and bejewelled the (music) with a silvery, pearl-like virtuosity... 
Edenkobener Rundschau, Germany

… the fortepiano’s fascinating potential for tonal nuance... was demonstrated [by Faron] to a capacity audience this evening, with playing of “gold standard” quality. 
Mainzer Allgemeiner, Germany

CD RECORDINGS:

 ...5.0 out of 5 stars  ...it is without doubt, the best recording of Mozart sonatas on a fortepiano that I have ever heard.  ... She vigorously attacks the music in the way that Nicholas Harnoncourt would with an orchestra; as a result, these middle period works are revealed as works of considerable depth, and deserving of a better reputation! ... The recording is excellent... It has surprising power in the fortes, and is capable of great delicacy when required. It is one of those great, almost unrecognized, performances.
Duncan R. McKeown (Amazon): Mozart Piano Sonatas

...Faron’s energy and evident involvement compel you to listen… never remotely bland… boldly etched playing and forceful musical personality...
Gramophone (international CD magazine): Haydn Piano Sonatas

...Clementi himself could well have performed his sonatas the same way as Miss Faron.
