“Denver native Stacey Miller Rose delivered a strong, well-conceived performance. Soloist and conductor seemed to be in perfect union throughout, with ensemble and solo becoming one reaction to another. The flourishes and waves of sound coupled with articulation gave just the right majestic nature to this masterpiece. Ms. Rose gave a convincing and intellectual interpretation of the architecture and form...with matching sound qualities producing beautiful lyricism. The third movement closed with bravura and a standing ovation enthusiastically marked its reception.”

“It is rare to hear Dvorak's Piano Concerto performed these days, but even more so, to hear it played with conviction and nobility. Ms. Rose breathed life into this pianistically challenging work, giving it character and profundity which caused this listener to perk up quickly. Her sophisticated style and thoughtfulness evoked the maximum outpouring from the orchestral accompaniment. No question, Mr. Dvorak would have been pleased to hear that his piano work could hold its own when performed like this.”
~ The Rocky Mountain News

“Stacey Rose was the toast of Nova Vista Symphony’s season opening concert. Her confident performance of Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No.1 contributed to the spirited interpretation of this classic. The highlight of the Mendelssohn piece is the piano solo that establishes themes ranging in emotion from lighthearted to soulful and brooding. Rose carried the depth and urgency of the movements with a feeling for the motivation integral in the composition. Her tenacity and skill projected resonate clarity in the delicate and lively measures as much as in the imbroglio of musical patterns.”
