Notes and Editorial Reviews
'Vol. 25 in this Hyperion series deserves to become a best-seller' (Hi-Fi News) 'The piano writing exudes scintillation and brilliance and seems custom-made for Seta Tanyel's lush, colourful sonority and effortless leggiero fingerwork' (International Record Review) 'Technically impeccable ... vivid and well produced' (Gramophone) '[Tanyel] can totally identify with this kind of post-Lisztian lyric bravura style'(BBC Music Magazine) 'Technically impeccable...vivid and well-produced' (Gramophone) 'The Piano Concerto No 2 is a barnstorming, big-hearted, tune-filled warhorse of a piece that audiences would love if they heard it' (Punch) 'Seta Tanyel's thoughtful and richly coloured new performances make a distinguished addition to the catalog ... a winner. Strongly recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
