About this Recording
Between the Lines: Idil Biret talks to Jeremy Siepmann

SCHUMANN, R.: Papillons / Carnaval / Arabeske / Waldscenen (Biret Solo Edition, Vol. 7)

“The most exciting young pianist to come to Montreal in years. She has a personal magnetism that belongs only to a certain type of virtuoso performer, one who succeeds in hypnotizing you no matter how what he or she is playing… Miss Biret is one of the finest natural Schumann players I have ever come across. In fact I cannot recall ever hearing a better all round performance of Schumann’s Fantasiestücke in any concert hall in this city.”
“ Idil Biret deservedly belongs among the most important leading musicians on the Naxos label. Her Chopin can be recognized blindfold after a few notes… I regard her Schumann-Debussy-Tchaikovsky disc (8.550885) as a real jewel. Schumann’s Childhood Dreams (Kinderszenen) are seen through the eyes of an adult. Biret’s Debussy is full of sensitivity and intimate feeling.”
“The Idil Biret Solo Edition, featuring recent rather than historical performances by the Turkish pianist, is turning out to be a truly exceptional experience. The IBA (Idil Biret Archive) label has been releasing a flood of Biret recordings in its ‘Beethoven’, ‘Concerto’ and ‘Archive’ series, but the ‘Solo Edition’ recordings are in some ways the most impressive of all…Biret is fully involved in the music (of Schumann), highly expressive as well as totally in command of her instrument, and the result is two discs filled with excellence from start to finish.”
