"Sohn plays with a thrilling, personal, hall-filling sound that is also flexible, vocal, and immediate; he was born to play the piano."The Boston Globe
손민수는 황홀하면서도 내면적으로 공연장을 가득 채우는 소리로 연주한다.
그 소리는 또한 유연하고, 노래하며, 즉각적이었다. 그는 피아노를 연주하기 위해 태어났다.
"Sohn is a perfect example of the synergistic miracle that can happen between composers and performers – how minds can meet at impossible distances of time and space, and create together."Mission City Record
손민수는 시공간을 초월한 작곡가와 연주자가 정신이 만나 기적을 일으키는 완벽한 사례이다.

This recording of Liszt transcriptions is 2006 Honens Prize Laureate Minsoo Sohn's Honens-label debut, about which The Toronto Star wrote, "Sohn tosses off the fearsome technical challenges without breaking stride while at the same time elegantly colouring each mood."Toronto star
놀랍고도 도전적인 기교로 한 순간에 도달하는 강렬함과 우아함을 동시에 선사하는 피아니스트
The beauty in Sohn's performance comes from its underlying clear-headedness, blended with a very strong grasp of the playful nature of Baroque dance forms Bach inserts.Toronto star
The music shimmers with playful light. Bach's contrapuntal textures are as clear and sparkling as a Swarowski store window.
손민수의 연주의 아름다움은 즉흥적인 바로크 댄스 양식을 깊이 이해하며 조화를 이루면서도 근본적으로는 냉철한 접근으로부터 시작된다.
그의 바흐 연주 속의 대위법적인 성부들은 스와로브스키처럼 반짝거린다.
"Sohn commands a magnificent sonority capable of quicksilver colorations."The Boston Globe
손민수는 변화무쌍한 색채를 담아내는 장대한 음색으로 피아노를 지휘했다.
2006 Honens Prize Laureate Minsoo Sohn's recording of Bach's Goldberg Variations was named one of the top 25 records of 2011 by The New York Times. "Beautifully articulated, radiant interpretation..."Vivien Schweitzer
Mr. Sohn illuminated here with a thoughtfully conceived and poetic interpretation, enhanced by tasteful ornamentation. Mr. Sohn’s crisp articulation rendered the fast, virtuosic numbers a delight, and he imbued the slower sections with an appealing intimacy.The New York Times
These were deeply considered, tightly knit performances in which every bar seamlessly followed another and also filled its right place in the whole. It is virtually impossible to pick his interpretations apart, point to details, it all seemed consequent and inevitable...His performance stood out for its steady pace and progression, its splendid clarity and consistency of tone, and the elegance of the melodic lines. Playing a modern instrument in the same way he played the Webern and the Brahms, he was able, as I mentioned above, to do justice to modern technique and the Baroque origins of the music. Sohn’s approach was so free from mannerisms and so well integrated. In its rigor, elegance, and integrity, Minsoo Sohn’s interpretation is the most satisfying I have heard in recent years.New York Arts
"One can feel absolutely certain that Sohn is an artist, a man who will create life in music, find listeners, and reward them."The Boston Globe
