Notes & Reviews:

"The recordings Idil Biret made in 2012 of Schumann's Kreisleriana, Blumenstück and Carnival de Vienne show the pianist in her best form: Majestic, accurate, clear and always poetic. The lyrical sections of the Kreisleriana are of dreamlike beauty while the fast movements are at times performed with extraordinary humour and at others with glowing passion. Truly Schumannesque." PIANO NEWS (Germany) 2013 "Biret's interpretations of Schumann set her apart from the Pollinis, Brendels and Arraus of this world, and even from her teacher and long-time mentor Wilhelm Kempff." LEVERKUSENER ANZEIGER (Germany) 2006
