Between the Lines: Idil Biret talks to Jeremy Siepmann

SCHUMANN, R.: Piano Concerto / GRIEG, E.: Piano Concerto (Biret Concerto Edition, Vol. 1)

‘The Turkish pianist Idil Biret was one of the greatest child prodigies of the 20th century.;…This is the kind of playing that makes reservations irrelevant; there is no one like her, which is what defines a unique artist.’ (Boston Globe) ‘Extraordinary memory, brilliant technique and unusually insightful performances—these are the features of Idil Biret’s music making which allow her to play works inaccessible to other pianists, even eminent ones. The range of her repertoire is truly astounding…Her repertoire includes over one hundred concertos. In her playing Idil Biret reaches the levels of her great masters Kempff and Cortot.’ (1998 Duszniki Festival, Poland)
