"...the recital closed with Wellborn's fiery performance of Liszt's "Mephisto Waltz," a performance that had the audience longing for still more." Contra Costa Times

"Pianist William Wellborn displayed plenty of temperament...bone-mangling octaves..." Santa Barbara News Press

"...astonishing delicacy and brilliance...a grandly conceived, mature, often compelling performance of Liszt's B minor Sonata. Here, clearly is a pianist who thinks about the dramatic and rhetorical meanings of the notes he plays." San Antonio Express News
