“We are in the presence of one of the greatest virtuosos of our time. I do not see in her generation any other pianist who possesses an equal mastery of the keyboard, in the service of such a mature mind so rich in imagination” – Nouvelle Litteraires, 1959

“Turkish pianist Idil Biret was giving a rare performance of Pierre Boulez’s 2nd Piano Sonata. Miss Biret’s way with the piece was astonishing. She slammed into the keyboard and attacked the music tempestuously. She drove the music with an unrelenting virtuosity…This was a gripping, impressive account of a commanding score.” – The New Yorker, 1982
