“The marvellous Ingrid Fliter matched that tone with piano playing as sweet as a glass of condensed milk, and the acidic tinge of the slow movement never lost its beauty, matching seriousness with serenity. Her encore gave us as mellifluous a reading of a Chopin Nocturne as you’ll ever hear.” Simon Thompson Bachtrack
“Fliter brought explosive energy to the keyboard in the [Chopin] concerto, shooting up from the bench at the end of certain phrases. In the relaxed second movement, the violas, cellos, and basses unrolled a warm, enveloping melody with a nostalgic bent. Fliter dusted it with silvery figures, making for a gossamer halo effect, then led a joyous scamper through the high-flying finale. Throughout, Sung shaped the orchestra with subtle elan. As an encore, Fliter had Chopin’s Nocturne No. 8 in D-flat major, to which she carried over much of the concerto’s final breathless energy.” Boston Globe

“Technical brilliance and rousing virtuoso fire, charmed by a unique natural sweetness in tone, free from sentimentality… Together with the great young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, Hyeyoon Park forms a world class duo. This was clear in Szymanowski’s “Myths from 1915” whose richness of colour and refined melodies require not only limitless sensitivity, but also narrative creative power … Then a spirited performance of César Franck’s A major sonata, in which the finale was particularly intoxicating. Two encores, a Hungarian dance which set sparks flying, and Schumann’s evening song: gentle and simple.” Harald Eggebrecht, Sueddeutsche Zeitung, October 2020
