Reviews of recent performances:
Especially gripping was Szlubowska's performance of the Sonata for Unaccompanied Violin by the unjustly neglected Grazyna Bacewicz (1909-1960). Its hints of Bartok and neoclassical rigor suited Szlubowska's no-nonsense demeanor well; she held interest from first note to last...The Washington Post
Her tender, sweet, highest tones were exceptional. She played with strength and vigor throughout the Tchaikovsky Concerto. The cadenza was especially noteworthy for its wide range of expression and nuance, not to mention the technical feats.The News & Observer (Raleigh, North Carolina)
