Between the Lines: Idil Biret talks to Jeremy Siepmann

BEETHOVEN, L. van: Symphonies (arr. F. Liszt for piano), Vol. 2 (Biret) - Nos. 4, 5 (Biret Beethoven Edition, Vol. 6)

“Hear Idil Biret immersed in the music, at her sparkling best in the finale of the 4th Symphony—there you have a mirroring of the classic Josef Krips/Concertgebouw reading.”
Hi-Fi News
“Idil Biret has recently recorded Liszt’s transcriptions of Beethoven’s nine Symphonies for EMI. Her superbly authentic performance of the 5th Symphony, heard at Herkülessaal recital in Munich, received a thundering ovation.”
Münchner Merkur
“Idil Biret’s performance of the 5th Symphony was excellent. She dealt with it brilliantly which made for a beautiful climax to her recital in Tokyo. Liszt’s arrangement has preserved the symphony’s original image and Beethoven was always there thanks to Biret.”
