William Dart reports in the New Zealand Herald about Cristina's concert with Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra: "Goicea explored the full expanse of [Shostakovich's First Violin Concerto's] emotional terrain; her unwavering lyricism in the Nocturne and vibrant song in its dark Passacaglia contrasted with the scherzo's barbed lightning and the knockabout ironies of its Big Top Burlesca. Her absolute assurance in Shostakovich's extremely taxing cadenza was a preview, in many respects, for an encore to come — a lingeringly buoyant Bach Sarabande." Read the article
