Beatrice Long is a rising young pianist to watch during next few seasons. A recent review by Robert Jones, Charleston SC said: "She played with a strong rhythmic drive and summoned up lush and colorful sounds." "Even before she takes her place at the keyboard, it's clear she means business." Regarding the same performance on the International Piano Series, William Furtwangler wrote: "Long plays with a maximum of insight and technical ability and can bring the mighty Steinway to its knees." She played Rachmaninoff Concerto No. 2 in New York with the Amsterdam Philharmonic at Symphony Space to a full house and received a standing ovation.

She has won numerous competitions, is playing extensively in this country and abroad and receiving excellent reviews and return engagements, has studied with renowned teachers, and has made three compact discs for Naxos. In reviewing her all-Scriabin disk, American Record Guide said: "Ms. Long is a strong, no-nonsense musician whose command of these works is impressive on many levels."

Her top awards are: the Robert Casadesus International Piano Competition, the Young Keyboard Artists Association International Competition, the AMSA 1990 World Piano Competition and the Taipei International Piano Competition. Most recent among her awards is FIRST prize in the Ellis Duo Piano Competition in which she performed with her sister, Christina
