Idil Biret reviews

Critical acclaim

  • Wilhelm Kempff (Germany) "My favourite disciple Idil Biret... This genius pianist belongs to the class of elect musicians of our time."
  • Igor Kipnis (USA) "The complete Chopin set by Idil Biret can stand among the highest echelons of contemporary Chopin playing."
  • Donald Henahan (USA) "Only a brave soul and a confident technician would set out in public to play Liszt's transcription for piano of Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique, as Idil Biret did."
  • Tully Potter (England) "The distinguished pianist Idil Biret shows herself to be one of the finest exponents of Chopin's concertos in the world today. I cannot think of any competitor who can offer better performances than these."
  • Henry-Louis de la Grange (France) "Idil Biret, this great pianist, who in 1986 victoriously launched an assault on Liszt's transcription of Beethoven’s nine symphonies, does it again today by playing Chopin in its entirety in a breathtaking interpretation."
