Markus Bellheim reviews


FRANKFURTER ALLGEMEINE ZEITUNG, 21 August 1998:

“Mit eiskaltem Gesichtsausdruck und sicherem Gespuer fuer das Wesentliche bei den unortodoxen pianistischen Effekten entfaltete er eine witzig rasselnde Viruositaet von unwiderstehlicher Faszination”

LE FIGARO, 20 December 2000:

“L’execution a ete magnifique, stylistiquement parfaite. Bellheim n’a pas vole sa victoire, il l’a emporte  par son assurance, sa maturite et sa maitrise de l’ensemble du repertoire”.

PIANISTE, No 6, December 2000:

“Le charisme de Bellheim etait fort impressionant. Il nous a eblouis par une energie, un mystere, une puissance, qui nous ont emmenes au-dela du concours, vers la musique pure...”

NEUE RUHR ZEITUNG, 3 May 2002:

“Hochachtung verdient vor allem das phisische und schier unglaubliche musikalische Koennen des jungen Markus Bellheim, derartig riesig dimensionierte, schwierige Werke im Repertoire zu haben und wie selbstverstaendlich ueber Stunden absolut konzentriert und brillant zu spielen”

NORTHERN ECHO (Newcastle/Gateshead), 1 March 2008:

“(...) his exchanges with the Northern Sinfonia Orchestra (in Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3) were vigorous and keenly articulated with some thunderous bursts on the keyboard. Bellheim pushed the finale through to a conclusion that was something to behold, as his hands became a veritable blur on keyboard. A thrilled audience was treated to an equally virtuoso rendition of The Russian Dance from Stravinksky's ballet, Petruska”.

GAZETA WYBORCZA (Gdansk), 1 December 2008:

„The Star of the evening was Markus Bellheim, who performed the piano part (in Turangalila-Symphonie) unusually professional. His bravura playing, rich in expressiveness, pithy and full of imagination, brought down the house”.

THE HUDDERSFIELDER EXAMINER (Leeds/Huddersfield), 24 April 2009:

“Markus Bellheim provided much clarity and purpose, and his tasteful embellishments were all to the good.”
