Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

For more than 50 years, Menahem Pressler was the driving force of the legendary Beaux Arts Trio, giving 6,000 performances until the trio stopped performing in 2009. Pressler is now returning to a solo career. He is the last representative of a pianistic tradition directly connected with the great German and French piano schools: he studied with several pupils of the illustrious Ferruccio Busoni. "Pressler's ability to give all the voices prominence while simultaneously isolating the melody was amazing. His fingers still retain a youthful facility." The Washington Post
