‘For well versed insiders of music, Idil Biret is since years a trusted and respected artist… The discipline of her powerful grasp and approach of the music has led, especially for works of the 20th Century, to a stylistic congruence between the written score and the interpretation, that is way outside of the usual norms of conventions which, in the case of Idil Biret, makes us all aware of an outstanding artistic potency of the highest standards of excellence.’ Die Welt
