“Idil Biret’s new Liszt album prompts a reappraisal of her extraordinary talent… In her Liszt Sonata… you will hear playing of a formidable power and assurance… There is no mistaking her lightning refl exes in the second of the Paganini Etudes and her vivo in the imitation sautillé bowing of No. 4 would make even Heifetz envious. Biret’s brilliant, iron-clad Steinway is well recorded and… in her Liszt, there is stunning profi ciency and a forbidding manner very much her own.” Gramophone, 2011

Gramophone Magazine

December 2011

“Biret sweeps through the set [of Etudes] with unfaltering assurance and in No. 9, the prototype for 'La ricordanza'...she is as affectionate as she is dextrous. Elsewhere there are suspicions of a 'play the notes and the rest will look after itself' philosophy...Biret rides [Il Lamento's] storms with an thunder-and-lightening virtuosity.”
