In 1986, following her Canadian performance with the National Symphony under conductor Mstislav Rostropovich, a music critic of the Toronto Star wrote, "She played Rachmaninoff's 3rd as if it was written for her."
She has performed with many of the finest symphony orchestras in the world and with many of the leading conductors of our time such as Rudolf Barshai, Kirill Kondrashin, Nathan Rakhlin, Mstislav Rostropovitch, Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Yury Simonov, Stanislaw Skrowachevsky, Yevgeny Svetlanov and many others. In addition to Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, she has performed in the Royal Albert Hall in London, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Orchestra Hall in Chicago, Royal Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory, Great Hall of St. Petersburgh Philharmonic, Queen Elizabeth Hall in London, Sheldonian Theatre and Holywell Music Room in Oxford, England and many more. In 1990, after a 13 years absence, Ms. Yablonskaya returned to Russia for a sold-out concert, master classes and recitals at the Moscow Conservatory. Since then she has returned on a regular basis and is once more recognized as an elite piano virtuoso in Russia.
