"Lovely recital by the gifted young Polish pianist"

Huge thanks to Huntley Dent from the Fanfare Magazine for a wonderful review of my CD. Click on the picture below for the full text. You need to register to get access. The review will also be printed in Issue 45:1, Sept/Oct 2021.

"(...) immensely rewarding recital (...). Strongly recommended."

 

"(...) a haunting Chopinist (...) a keyboard poet."

"There is much color and variety in her playing. (...) pianists at any level would be proud to play (...) Ravel pieces with Bilicka’s artistry and innate musicality. It is here that she reveals her ability to sound personal, as well as demonstrating her excellent technique."

"[about Szymanowski's Prelude] (...) it exudes the same poetic delicacy, which Bilicka captures beautifully, making something lovely out of simplicity."

"Some musicians play the piano. Some musicians express music through the piano. Polish pianist Elzbieta Bilicka is a prime example of the latter argument."

A warning to fellow musicians

Stay clear of Orpheus Classical record label

Jeffrey Arlo Brown from VAN Magazine has a great article on mysteries behind Orpheus Classical and a few fellow organisations involved in international piano competitions. I share my experiences in this interview, too. It is worth reading and remembering the lesson.
