“Ying has individual ideas; he can clearly do anything he wants at the piano. But he is far too intelligent and sensitive to waste his big technique in superficial display. There is an integrity to his pianism that commands respect.”
“Tian Ying’s Chopin was the most fascinating experience…His quality of sound is intensely imaginative, achieved and beautiful, with the capacity for largeness and fullness, and he showed in his phrasing a courtesy towards the music, inviting it rather than applying force, that was rare…this is an undemonstrative and unpretentious musician.”
