“The ineffable piano of this artist carries within him this song, this bit of madness, and the nostalgia that signed the unique art of Guiomar Novaes, Vladimir Horowitz , Clara Haskil, Wilhelm Kempff and a few others, including Catherine Collard, who was the queen of this repertoire (…) ”

“Without a doubt, the way Laloum led his audience through this incredible ” Garden Fantasy “of musical colors and sensual impressions, was the peak of the evening and one of the highlights of the Munich concert season. Truly masterful! ”
Süddeutsche Zeitung – Recital Herkulessaal, Munich 2015

*****”All Schubert is there – in these oscillations between major and minor keys, these swings punctuated with silences, these confidences blown in your ear. He pierces the depths of a less serene music than it seems : this sudden modulation – as a cry! – in the second Moment Musical, or these insistent chords in the fifth, played not too fast, with a certain weight. The 6th Moment musical is disarmingly candid. A great Schubert. “

Time, Julian Sykes – Lucerne Festival 2013
