Pianist Scores a Splendid Success in Recital, Wigmore Hall, London, England, June 27, 1922
London Referee, July 2, 1922
—This artist has a powerful and fluent technique which was used with confidence. … showed perception of the construction of the works and climax.
The London Daily Telegraph, June 28, 1922
—Heniot Levy … possesses virtues beyond ordinary. Not only is his execution good, but his tone is beautifully warm and resonant, and it never loses its quality or acquires an element of harshness or hardness in the fullest fortissimo, and his fortissimi can be very full indeed. … his performances of three Chopin Ballades and the B Minor Sonata were both strong and sympathetic and he realized their poetry without ever becoming mawkishly sentimental.
London Westminster Gazette, June 28, 1922
—There was plenty of go about the playing of Mr. Heniot Levy, an American pianist who made his first appearance in London. The vigour with which he attacked the last movement of Chopin's B Minor Sonata, for instance, was exhilarating in the extreme.… those qualities include not only brilliant execution, but also sound musical understanding and a nice sense of style.
London Morning Post, June 28, 1922
—This pianist … indicated the possession of a breadth of vision which justified his choice of works so often played. The essential soundness of his musicianship … notable authority. His own variations supplied evidence of a cultivated imagination.
London Financial Times, July 3, 1922
—… magnificent technique.… perfect rendering of some of the most difficult music for the piano.
London, The Times
—… played with true expression.
London Lady, July 6, 1922
—His tone is very powerful and at times it reminds one of the sound of a very low toned bell.
Musical America, July 15, 1922
—Another American musician, Heniot Levy, made a fine impression at his recent recital. He gave a program of wide range with assurance and a fine exhibition of temperament.
Musical Courier, August 10, 1922
—Heniot Levy has an unusually easy technical facility, an apparently unlimited range of power from massive strength to the veriest shade of delicacy, a rich and singing tone, and the musical intelligence of a born, as well as an experienced artist. Nothing now remains for Heniot Levy to do but to come again and keep on coming. London ought to be placed definitely on his musical map.
