RAVEL, M.: Miroirs / Gaspard de la nuit / La valse (Biret)
“Talent is what Idil Biret has in prodigious measure. The Turkish pianist made that clear from the start in her recital at Alice Tully Hall…In Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit the pianist had mastered the delicate spray of notes in Ondine, the grim mood of Le Gibet with its interminable oppressive B flats and the skittering brilliance of Scarbo.” NEW YORK TIMES USA
“Gaspard de la nuit, one of the great landmarks of early 20th century music, is wonderfully revealed in Idil Biret’s visionary performance.” STEREO REVIEW USA
“Idil Biret is extremely proficient in matters technical, secure in her sense of style and not afflicted by interpretive quirks that pass so often for personality. In Ravel’s Gaspard de la nuit, she played all three pieces in the suite with enormous assurance…At the end her audience, not surprisingly, rose to its feet.” TORONTO STAR Canada
