“Talented artist, undeniable finial of musical interpretation is allied to her original thought, and her quality as an artist is expressed by her mastery approach to the instrument…”Claude Ledoux
“Her musicality together with her virtuosity stroke me totally and I appreciate her diligent work on the interpretation.”Kenji Sakai
“Kaoru produces serene, yet rich sound texture; the fluctuation of beat and the perspective of the motif are ingenious. I hope many more people will taste this joy of finding a grain of gold with your own eyes and ears, from her commercialism-unrelated, sincere and an experimental performance.Miyuki Shiraishi
