Between the Lines: Idil Biret talks to Jeremy Siepmann

BEETHOVEN, L. van: Symphonies (arr. F. Liszt for piano), Vol. 1 (Biret) - Nos. 1, 2 (Biret Beethoven Edition, Vol. 2)

“From the outset of the 1st Symphony one feels that Idil Biret grasps the size of Beethoven’s style. The polyphony is laid out in a relaxed way with little indulgence in point-making. She keeps her big line, and yet is thankfully sparing in her use of fortissimos. I especially admire how she is able to give the impression of a live performance in the Larghetto from the 2nd, and here, as in other slow movements, one is reminded that her mentor has been Wilhelm Kempff…This is a remarkable achievement.” (Gramophone) “Universally gifted pianists like Idil Biret, who do not limit themselves to a cleverly selected repertory are nowadays very rare…With the recent release of the Beethoven / Liszt Symphonies international recognition should be secure for her.” (Fonoforum)
