Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"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." - The Montreal Star (Canada)"A recital program of Beethoven's Sonata, Op. 28, Schumann's Fantasiestücke, Op. 12, Schubert's Impromptus and finally, to conclude, Prokofiev's Sonata No. 7 . Having at her disposal gentleness and force as well as the wide range of color palette such a program requires, it is easy to explain the acclamation of the excited public at Idil Biret's recital." - Nouvelles Litteraires (France) "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 are seen through the eyes of an adult. Biret's Debussy is full of sensitivity and intimate feeling." - Klassik Forum (Germany) Born in Ankara, Idil Biret was a pupil of Alfred Cortot and Nadia Boulanger, and a lifelong disciple of Wilhelm Kempff. Her more than eighty records since the 1960s include the complete piano works of Brahms, Chopin, Rachmaninov, the three Sonatas of Boulez, the Etudes of Ligeti and the complete Firebird piano transcriptions by Stravinsky. Her Chopin recordings received a Grand Prix du Disque Frédéric Chopin award in Poland and the Boulez recording the Golden Diapason of the year award in France.
