'My best memories of Schubert's D 845 have been of Kathron Sturrock (founder of Fibonacci Sequence) in a rare solo recital devoted to that one work, and on CD.'
Richard Goode, Musical Pointers
'The pianist Kathron Sturrock has got to be one of the best chamber musicians in the business and her accompanying of Inoue is superb.'
'The playing, as always with the Fibs, is superb, the sumptuous tone colour of the winds supported by Kathron Sturrock’s detailed and supremely musical pianism.'
'In Mozart's G minor piano quartet Kathron Sturrock's judicious touch and perfect ensemble reminded us that she is one of the most stylish chamber music pianists around.'
'Total rhythmic security provided by Kathron Sturrock's command of the torrential piano part.'
