Ann Hobson Pilot's technique is poised between virtuoso strength and poetic subtlety; she is capable of producing an enormous range of volume and a full spectrum of color. Best of all, she is a real communicator; she believes in what she is doing, in what the music has to say.
-Richard Dyer, Boston Globe
