Teo Gheorghiu press reviews

Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 at the Tonhalle with the Winterthur Orchestra in May 2007 won him further critical acclaim: The Tages Anzeiger described his interpretaion as “one of complete musical naturalness...eschewing hyper-romanticism in favour of a more sober approach (not unlike Rachmaninov’s own recordings).”

“He simply had everything: leaps, runs, repititions, dynamic contrasts, lines of expression – nothing was ignored in his thrilling playing. Teo Gheorghiu is a huge talent. And as recipient of the Beethoven-Ring he is a worthy representative of the series that started with names like Gustavo Dudamel, Julia Fischer and Lisa Batiashvili.” (General-Anzeiger Bonn, February 2010)

"His touch on the keyboard is of blinding clarity. His differentiation of acoustic perspectives is astounding. His playing is regular and brilliant.” (Tribune de Geneve, January 2009)

“His playing searches...for the secrets of the opus, and tries to fathom the composers’ notes of formulated passions. His touch is technically perfect and full of colour and expression....his fingers seem to talk as they dance on the keys with fire and power. His virtuosity is far from being superficial, bringing the 16-year-old's own life experiences into the symphonic dialogue....Teo interprets this gracious intermezzo of intimate reminiscences with elegant gestures, lightness and detachment. In the lyrical encores Teo shows yet further proof of his already wonderful maturity”. (Potsdamer Neueste Nachrichten, December 2008)
