“It has become Ferman’s mission, in the concert hall and in recordings, to acquaint the public with the unfairly neglected music of the Americas. She is an artist with an endearing attitude toward the compositions which she interprets. One is given the strong impression that they are her own creations which she longs to expose to the light of the concert hall. Expose them she does, with a touching humility, fluidity of technique and richness of sound”

The Japan Times

“The remarkable P. Ferman displayed by turns considerable power and exquisite sensibilities, while exhibiting an astonishingly wide range of tonal hues. What deeply resonant tones her touch yielded! Argentine music came vibrantly alive as Mrs. Ferman eminently succeeded in capturing and conveying the substance, spirit and essence or Argentine music. One no longer wondered why famous composers admired many of their Argentine peer”

1) “The repertoire mainstays, Mendelssohn’s ‘Variations serieuses, Op. 54’. and Chopin’s ‘Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise, Op. 22’, gave the píanist ample opportunity to display her technical brilliance”

Her commitment to the work’s musical language -a tribute to the festive celebrations of Brazil, viewed at street level- was never in doubt”
