Luca Buratto, piano
‘The composer Thomas Adès was in the audience, saluted Mr. Buratto, and, like the rest of us in Zankel Hall, realised we were experiencing an artist who is both illuminating and unafraid.’
- ConcertoNet, New York
‘No ordinary virtuoso. (…) A gift for summoning different shades of colour – not just one after another but simultaneously – is clearly one of Buratto’s great gifts. But there’s more to Buratto than a brilliant colourist … made one think that alongside the risk-taker and brilliant colourist there lurks a poet.’
- The Telegraph, U.K.
‘Luca Buratto … introduced the concert series with a magnetic performance that was pure both in emotion and technique. (…) he settles quickly into performance mode and his quiet intensity is a marvel to watch. (…)’
- The Utah Review, U.S.A.
‘Buratto’s dramatic, enthusiastic playing style was a delight to watch … the performance seemed to reveal an intimacy between Buratto and the piano; at times, I felt like an intruder on a secret rendezvous, as the pianist was so clearly in his own. (…) The audience seemed equally entranced by Buratto.’
- Revue and Revue Holding Company, U.S.A.
Tang Tee Khoon, violin
‘Despite her petite built, she exuded a big and brawny tone on the violin, one capable of cutting through plangent piano textures and capaciously filling the hall. In Prokofiev's Second Violin Sonata, she alternated between its bittersweet reminiscences and mercurial dervishes so expertly and confidently without as much as breaking into a sweat.
She brought out the requisite shades and nuances of Tchaikovsky's Souvenir D'un Lieu Cher … Through these, an unfailingly singing tone happily co-existed with an iron-clad technique and razor-keen responses.’
- The Straits Times, Singapore
‘Violinist Tang Tee Khoon and friends transcend the ordinary’
‘performances like these leave listeners craving for more’
‘rarely does one find a performance that radiated such warmth and true feeling’
‘Here the unison playing in high tempos … was delivered with stunning accuracy. There was to be no tiring as the quartet raced to a breathless finish, that was greeted by a near-capacity audience with loud acclaim.’
- The Straits Times, Singapore [Tang Tee Khoon Grand Series]
