Some reviews of my concert playing include:
“The Engulfed Cathedral, as played by Jarred Dunn, was evocative and mystical, and both the buildup, as the cathedral rose out of the sea, and the descent, as it went back into the water, were impressively done."
-Classical Music Guide Forums, New York
"Particular attention was drawn to young Canadian pianist Jarred Dunn, who performed the popular D Minor Concerto of Mozart. Invited on the recommendation of the conductor, the Canadian pianist demonstrated on the stage not only technically perfect performance, but attentive listeners felt his ... understanding of Mozart's style, in a perfect ensemble with orchestra, with a subtle and deep inner experience created by a real musician."
