What they wrote about her:

La Quinta del Arte« Brought up in the stern order of the seven pianos of a house, similarly painted by Goya, kind of "Quinta del Sordo", Uruguayan temple of music, in utmost Latin America. Priest angel, with a sharp profile, sprung up out of the copper chips bursting out her childish hair: She is currently in the midst of creative process, through contemporary technique learnt in Paris.

A revolutionary born within tradition, she naturally knows how to make us effortlessly take part in the ultimate, often disconcerting, musical discoveries. This initiation is a privilege. This privilege is absolutely necessary so that music be revealed to all music lovers, not reserved for high-brows in the know. This gift of communication, at a high level, does not scare Renée Pietrafesa, for it has always been her companion. It follows her faithfully as she faces her audience, along her tireless path: Composer, conductor, player, sometimes painter, and always authentic. »

Bernard Bistes, 1978
