"Milstein's insight into how the music expands in stature stays in the memory. (...) astonishingly mature and complete reading of music (...) Balance, colour and momentum emerged from her accomplished virtuosity with spellbinding immediacy (...) Nathalia Milstein's talent is clearly to be nurtured."
Peter Reed, Classical Source, "Nathalia Milstein at Wigmore Hall - Haydn, Schubert, Rachmaninov", 19/03/17

"Milstein (...) showed electric and passionate percussive power as her fingers pounded the notes or caressed them with a lightness of tone."
Liam Murphy, Munster Express, 25/10/16

"(...) Milstein's performance of the [Tombeau de Couperin] six movements is a joy to behold. Ravel's extraordinary writing for the piano is brought to life in her hands (...) Witnessing the artistry and technique of Nathalia Milstein's playing tonight in the hushed church is a sublime experience."

"First Prize of the 2015 Dublin Piano Competition, the French pianist Nathalia Milstein opens her recital with the Toccata in C minor BWV 911 of Bach, remarkable by its clarity and rhetoric sense. (...) Impossible to resist to the appropriateness of tone and poetry in the Three Mazurkas op.50 of Chopin. They had a taste of too little before the Ravelian Valse conducted with mastery, suppleness and fire."
Alain Cochard, Concertclassic.com, 19/06/16

"A remarkable interpretation, sublime, for an exceptional moment shared by the entire public."
Le Dauphiné Libéré, 15/06/16

"Going to concert is sometimes a chance to discover promising young talents. (...) A delightful evening ! (...) as she starts, we perceive in Nathalia Milstein a remarkably natural musicianship, a sensibility of great finesse, a maturity of playing already assumed, which results in an undeniable pianistic personality."
Julie Jozwiak, Bachtrack, 2/05/16

"Though possessing a formidable technique, this sensitive and at times introverted French pianist showed herself to be much more concerned about the arching curve of the phrasing than by loud octaves. (...) The first half [of the program] allowed her to revel in the wistful poetry of Schumann while in the second half she caught the visceral qualities of Prokofiev's music very well. (...) Milstein shaped her phrases superlatively, with perfect gradation of sound, one phrase melting into the next."
Andrew Larkin, Bachtrack, 18/02/16

"[The First Prize] goes to France's 19-year-old Nathalia Milstein's electrifying performance of Prokofiev's 2nd Concerto. (...) she invests the Concerto's gargantuan cadenza with staggering virtuosity. But expressive lyricism also has its rightful place in the moments of calm between Prokofiev's turbulent outbursts. Ms Milstein's award is well deserved."
Pat O'Kelly, The Independent, 30/05/15
