Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Finnish pianist, Marita Viitasalo is known for her accompaniment with lied singers which requires skills and sensibilities that are distinctly different than those of a soloist or chamber musician. These Debussy Préludes indeed suggest not only her tremendous pianistic facility but her ability to listen in between the notes, a critical need for lied accompanists.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
Viitasalo leans towards more straightforward, textbook-perfect renderings of Debussy and Ravel. Compared to Vittasalo's performance of Book 2, these sound flawless and cleanly articulated. I enjoy her Suite Bergamasque. I prefer Viitasalo's more understated, sober interpretation.
