“Peterson impressed with gripping originality and brave accentuation.”

Walliser Bote, Switzerland

“A piano concert of a very special kind took place Saturday afternoon in the Concert Hall of the Torgau Rathaus. The city administration of Torgau along with the Leipzig Consulate arranged it in cooperation with the “Elbe” festival… the American pianist Jason Paul Peterson performed American and Russian music by Samuel Barber and Alexander Scriabin. The Saturday concert was absolutely an exquisite experience.

Leipziger Volkszeitung, Germany

“The star of Saturday’s concert was none other than Jason Peterson. Peterson stole the show with his playing of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 in B-flat minor. What an amazing talent this young man has. He well deserved the standing ovation the crowd gave him. We only wish Peterson had played more.”

Portage Daily Register

“Linton’s melodies bring to mind Debussy, Poulenc, Britten, the Second Viennese School and countless other influences by which he shuns monotony and diversifies the atmosphere for each song. In consequence, the piano accompaniment, scintillatingly executed by Jason Paul Peterson, delivers streaming cascades of notes suggestive of Ravel in either « Vivamus mea Lesbia » or mesmerizing swirling rolls in « Minister uetuli puer Falerni ».

“The most sincere Beethoven playing I’ve ever heard.”

“Pianist Jason Paul Peterson is a full-fledged partner who exhibits thorough mastery of some fearsomely challenging music.”

Auvillar was treated to an extraordinary concert last night in the Halle. >Ventriloquist Acts of God, a series of five poems by VCCA-France resident Ellen Wise, has been set to music by composer (and VCCA fellow) Adolphus Hailstork. Those of us who hadn’t heard this before were overwhelmed by what came next – Pianist Jason Paul Peterson and soprano Agnes Fuller Mobley-Wynne performed the Hailstork compositions based on Ellen’s work. The two hadn’t collaborated before, but the power and range of Agnes’ voice and the drama and subtlety of Jason’s piano, and the way the two of them played off of each other made it a night to remember.”

On Tuesday, May 24, French baritone Edwin Crossley-Mercer and pianist Jason Paul Peterson opened the 2016 edition of the Baldwin Wallace Art Song Festival with a recital in Gamble Auditorium… Jason Paul Peterson was a fine and communicative accompanist throughout the cycle.

Cleveland Classical

The first in VIVA la Musica’s summer concert series, “Three Voices and a Pianist,” played to an almost full house May 26th. The concert used the amazing talents of concert pianist Jason Paul Peterson both as an accompanist and as soloist in Albeniz’ Iberia… Peterson’s interpretations were spectacular in all three.”

Guadalajara Reporter

“If any doubt remained that Peterson had solidified the music in his mental repertoire, it was erased… when the auditorium fell into blackness. The Schubert Opus continued. And it continued with the same crisp key striking and the same flawless timing that Peterson had been displaying in clear view. Peterson walked quickly off stage to thick applause and returned for the requisite encore…” -Western News, Montana
