"[Pressler's] encore was one that will likely linger in the hearts of all present: a Chopin Nocturne played with such tenderness and subtlety that audience members were spellbound, almost afraid to breathe and disperse the spirit. It made the evening's most convincing case that Pressler has accumulated as much wisdom in his soul as he has in his mind." Twin Cities, Pioneer Press, 14 March 2012
"Now 86 and still in a marvel of form, Pressler produced heart-melting tone colours at the piano in a lovingly performed collaboration [Emerson Quartet] that will be remembered as one of the highlights of the season. It was a wonderful joining of two superb musical forces, and the pianist and the string players sounded as if they perform together all the time." Classical Ottawa, 6 July 2010
