- Dear Imogen, my family and I saw you (for the first time) at Snape Maltings in August 2013 with Christiane Stotijn. You were both enchanting and deeply moving. What a treat! Please return some time to Suffolk.

- Dear Dr Cooper I was at Wigmore Hall on Tuesday for your recital - it was superb. Thank you so much. It is exceptionally rare to be able to perform Schubert not just well but superbly; the shifts in mood, the necessary shaping and architecture of long works requires very special understanding and maturity. Your recital was most thoroughly enjoyed, thank you. All good wishes Roy Palmer

- Dear Madame Cooper: You are a revelation to me! I have only lately encountered your recordings of the Schubert recitals in London and have spent many recreative hours listening to your music. Such elegance!!! Now, after listening to Pollini for years playing the Chopin Ballade in G-minor, I see you have lately included in recital -- well! We must have it on disc. Please make a Chopin CD!

- Dear Imogen Cooper, Thank you so much for your wonderful performance of Schubert`s E flat Impromptu from the first set, on Radio 3 this morning. Beautifully paced, sensitive dynamics, and unhurried. Your performance reminded me of Wilhelm Kempff,s 1960`s performance recorded, of course, on vynil for DG. Brian D. York

- Dear Imogen, We attended the Budapest Festival concert last Wednesday at Manchester. Thank you for an absolutely stunning performance of the Beethoven 1st piano concerto. A revalation. Felt like I was hearing it anew. It was a wonderful evening overall. It was such a shame that it was pretty poorly attended. People do not realise what they missed!

- Dear Ms. Cooper, As a young pianist absolutely fascinated and wanting to devote my life to the study of Schubert's music, your work has provided assurance that not only is it possible, but worthwhile. Your recording of D. 894 and D. 960 are the beacon of my days and I hope you always continue to play your heart out. It's a privilege to have found your work.

- Dear Imogen, (we barbarian egalitarian Swedish use only first names) tipped off by Peter Robinson (Before the Poison, if I recall correctly), I bought your three Schubert live records. They have enriched my life. In particular, the three last piano sonatas have an unrivalled emotional complexity, and it comes across so beautifully in your interpretations. Thank you! Jan (Jan Anward)
