Bursa Regional State Symphony Orchestra; Sakpinar, Ender; Biret, Idil

On this release, the tenth volume in the Idil Biret Concerto Edition, Idil Biret performs W.A. Mozart’s Piano Concertos Nos. 21 and 22 alongside the Bursa Regional State Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ender Sakpinar. ‘Miss Biret was soloist in an entrancing performance of Mozart’s concerto K. 482 with the Manchester Hallé Orchestra conducted by Mlle Nadia Boulanger. The variety of her playing its finely-shaded gradations and brilliant but never mechanical figurations, revealed her as already a remarkable artist. Not for many hears has a Hallé audience heard such perfectly balanced Mozart playing... No words can describe the wondrous finale, with its mixture of gaiety and anguish. This was a performance in which every note counted for its full value.’ (DAILY TELEGRAPH (UK) 1963) ‘I recently returned from a five week conducting tour...In Turkey Idil Biret was my soloist in a Mozart Concerto (K. 595). What a fine artist she is.’ (From a letter of AARON COPLAND to Mlle Nadia Boulanger (USA) 1973)
