“[With a] wide-ranging emotional expression… she offers some imaginative accounts, demonstrating much technical assurance, a varied expressive palette and due appreciation of national idioms…All played with substantial accuracy and musical perception, and commendable style.”

"Augusta McKay Lodge, stands out as the real thing, a true virtuoso"
- Seen & Heard International
"Her performance was outstanding: animated, well-ornamented, radiantly in tune"
“Lodge’s special skill, in addition to her intonational and tonal felicities, is ... an inexpressible sense of pace and pause that focuses the listener’s attention on each piece’s most poignant moments.”
