Lindsay Koob translates a Pizzicato Magazine review for Andrew von Oeyen’s Debussy, Stravinsky & Newman recording. Read the full review in the original language at www.pizzicato.lu.
“The hallmarks of American pianist Andrew von Oeyen (b. 1979) are clarity of texture, unpretentious musical flow and an ever-winning sense of elegance. That such virtues should enhance Claude Debussy’s Preludes, Book I, is a foregone conclusion. Stravinsky’s Petrouschka-Movements are also completely overwhelming: one has seldom heard this ballet music done in such richly animated, dancelike manner. The “Russian dance” achieves a particularly fascinating effect here. Von Oeyen plays both of the brilliant pieces by David Newman (Prelude, Antipodal Rag) with sovereign virtuosity as well. The quality of recorded sound is extraordinary.” —Remy Franck, Pizzicato
