” … Kreplin made magic … classical technique that was almost transcendent … the audience roared its approval.” Morgan­ Wilde, Tallahassee Democrat

“Tasteful discernment and phrasing … impeccable musicality and phrasing … all the possibilities of the instrument (exploited) with descriptive originality … eloquence and sensitivity … formidable … overwhelming and unquestionable success …” Nilda Urquiza, El Comercio, Lima, PERU
