TURKISH PIANIST & COMPOSER HÜSEYİN SERMET

LA STAMPA, NOVEMBER 2010

“Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4 is the realm of lyricism and detail — Sermet interprets its transparencies with liquid tone and great agility. The scales flow luminous and light; here and there the startling chords, played with strength, are like signposts, elements of contrast — to then quickly return to the gentle game of lightness and cantabile playing. Rock solid trills, amazing sudden pianos in those passages where Beethoven’s piano becomes as light as a musical box, tinkling as if by magic”

INTERNATIONAL PIANO, APRIL 2010

“Most impressive was Sermet’s delicacy and his remarkable ability to terrace his tone to elucidate textures… A remarkable, memorable recital.”
