Zefunot Culture introduced Revital to its audience together with the clarinetist Ron Selka and the soprano Shosh Lagil.
"Those who came [to Revital's concert] won a jackpot. The award winning Israeli pianist Revital Hachamoff played so with as much temperament and intensity that it would have a captured the entire Philharmonic hall under her spell."
"The orchestra rolled for the pianist Revital Hachamoff the red carpet: The Israeli pianist gave George Gershwin 'Rhapsody in Blue' an impressive performance. Her fingers danced at times soulfully softly, then again with acrobatic panache over the keys with her blond curls flying in the air. Big applauses were given for the rousing interpretation. We would like it would hear more of the successful soloist."
