Albers' performance of Dvořák's Cello Concerto at Severance Hall with the Cleveland Orchestra and resident conductor Jahja Ling suggested she will have a fantastic career. Her playing is mature in every sense of the word, from the vibrant sound she produces at all dynamic levels and technical ease with which she traverses treacherous lines to the interpretive poise that enables her to seize the ear.

Albers' finger work was crisp in the outer sections and her intonation right on target during the long solo . . . But even more impressive was the depth Albers brought to the performance, the way she shied away from showiness and let the music speak for itself.

There's no doubt that Albers has much to offer, as she consistently drew elegant and well-controlled tones from her instrument. Her cultivated vibrato gave her sound a gossamer gloss, and from a technical standpoint, Albers displayed a complete mastery of the many obstacles put in her way—all with a determined, focused stage presence.

San Antonio Express-News (San Antonio, TX)
Albers' bright, limpid tone and tight, beautiful vibrato never wearied. She had a wonderful way with dynamics—swelling to make a rhythmic point, or dropping to a conspiratorial whisper that demanded attention. When brilliant technique was needed, she complied with ease, but she was even more impressive in slow passages, where her sense of line was as lively as her tone.
