ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œProbably the most notable feature of MarshÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢s playing is her gorgeous soundÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Ârich, full, even voluptuous. Beyond this she exudes confidence and total control in performances of expressive intensity and sensitive attention to color and the use of vibrato.ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â
