Bosworth's musical acumen, technical mastery and collegiality are impressive.  He is an excellent pianist and a sound musician. "

Keith Lockhart

Bosworth is a pianist of virtuoso caliber with a wide ranging repertoire and full command of it... a complete pianist, a forceful and polished performer. "

Fred Goossen
University of Alabama, School of Music

His crystalline touch gave every evidence of a fluid, masterful technique... For the cynical, it had to be a revelation, an epiphany. "

Sarasota Herald Tribune

Character, brilliance and vivacity aptly apply to Bosworth's playing... "

Barry Snyder
Eastman School of Music

Bosworth is exceptionally talented, his playing technique superb, and his sensitive interpretations are full of touching nostalgia... he is a gifted pianist. "

Bosworth captivates transports and communicates deeply with his audience... "

Anthony Armoré

Richard Bosworth performed with elegance, grace and emotion... his virtuosity was nonpareil throughout. His music appeared to command the attention of all in the audience as well as all who were on stage... Bosworth's performance flowed with joyous ebullience; galloping virtuosity; deep emotional exaltation... he raced across the keyboard with controlled abandon. "

Those who sat on the right side of the Cultural Center Theater last Sunday heard a wonderful pianist, Richard Bosworth, zip through Mendelssohn's Concerto in d minor, Op. 40. Those who sat on the left got more. They had the opportunity to watch Bosworth's fingers dance through the showy piece... Bosworth certainly set a high standard, but it was nowhere near as dramatic as his bravura encore, the Scherzo from Litolff Concerto, which brought the appreciative audience to its feet... "

Sarasota Herald Tribune

Mr. Bosworth's interpretation of the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 24 in c minor is marked with a very round sound, tone beauty, and he also performs his own cadenzas to this concerto.  His very well controlled virtuosity is a characteristic of his playing, and it is always subordinate to the expression. "

Review of "Conductors from Abroad" Vraza Symphony

Richard Bosworth is a favorite with audiences and well known throughout the Southeast... he works so well with conductors and our orchestra players.  His musicianship is of the highest caliber, and it is to be noted that he is the "go-to" pianist for any difficult material. His rendition of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue elicited a spontaneous and unanimous standing ovation. "
