AT LUCERNE PIANO FESTIVAL
"An intimate reading. Rather than emphasising the demonic aspect or the work’s air of resignation, he was reflective and almost tender, fragile and resting in the shadows. He listened intently to each note, with playing that was profound and yet precise, soft and yet rounded and with a singing tone – elegant and with a range of colours. The cadenza he composed himself flowed into a void, dying away into nothing and then finding its own impetus again, unfolding into a brilliant, roaring climax and then handed over to the orchestra (Mozart)….The soloist played as if transformed into another being, massive and with a broad sweep, piling up cascading chords with impressionistic scene-painting (Ravel)"
