Between the Lines: Idil Biret talks to Jeremy Siepmann

LISZT, F.: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2 / Totentanz (Biret Concerto Edition, Vol. 4)

“After the brilliant Liszt interpreter Lazar Berman, now we have another maestro of the piano with a special affinity for Liszt—Idil Biret.”BERLINER ZEITUNG
“Though the concert program accented the virtuosic—and her sheer strength to the end was formidable—Biret proved she could be a poet at the proper opportunities, as in her truly miraculous delivery of the Liszt selection.” NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
“In performing Liszt’s monumental Sonata, Idil Biret marshaled the sustaining power to see the music to the end, at which point her audience, not surprisingly, rose to its feet. Relatively few pianists have the sense of architecture to organize this symphonic poem.” TORONTO STAR
