Changes made[edit]

Aside from a general rewrite improving quality--as well as eliminating a redundant sentence and desultory ordering of facts. I also added additional biographical and career data.

the Piano Sonata no. 32, op. 111, by Beethoven (with a first movement that makes extensive use of fugal textures reminiscent of Bach)[citation needed]

This opinion needs to be sourced or removed. (I haven't yet listened to this piece so the "fugal textures" may well be there, but obviously it needs to be backed up by more than an editor's opinion, even if the editor's a musicologist otherwise it would violate the "no original research" prohibition).

At the time of the recording, she was pregnant with her son, Adrian.

Not really sure of the relevance of her reproductive status at the time of the recording. Winning an Olympic medal, maybe, but sitting at a piano bench?

Also removed the following "External Links" (personally I think there should be a Policy against these; they should be integrated into the text or placed in footnotes):

Including her own webpage makes adding her MySpace page redundant

This is also redundant considering that Telarc's bio page for her is listed as well as the Amazon and Emusic pages referenced.

A list of her personal CD collection can hardly be considered encyclopedic.

  • "At Last, This Classical Pianist Gets the Spotlight She Deserves," By Barbara Jepson, Wall Street Journal [1]

This should have been worked into the text of the article rather than shoe-horned into a "list" section. Also, since she's only been in the big time for two years, and has hardly been banging her head against the recording studio walls for twenty years (she is, after all, only in her mid-thirties!). Especially since, according to some critics, she's still got some way to go before becoming the equal of those irritatingly note-perfect teenie-boppers "from China to Chattanooga" who seem to dominate the ivories in Art Music these days.

I do not believe that the New Yorker creates "10 best lists." Hence the reference to Dinnerstein's Goldberg Variations being on the New Yorker's list is suspect. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:18, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Born? On a date?[edit]

"born in New York City, USA"

This is a biographical article. Date of birth is one of the most basic pieces of information, surely!

Unless it's intended as a publicity article for a woman of a 'certain' (secret) age... —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:13, 20 January 2011 (UTC)
