The recital was Aspiras' seventh. She has gotten quite a sizable following among Americans and Filipinos who are awed by her sensitive playing.
The recital was held in memory of Philippine-born American, Sally Valente Kreisler, a long-time president of Neighbors Abroad, the concert sponsor. It is an organization that promotes international and intercultural understanding. The late Kreisler was credited for promoting cultural events of Filipino and American artists.
The audience marveled at Aspiras' clear and luminous tones. She displayed the confidence of a seasoned performer. Cool, she played without choreographic bravura, the sound she carved out enough to define a musical idea and taste.
At once, the pianist proved her undiminished capability. Élan wrapped her playing, which she delivered with solid dispatch, vividly delineating each section.
