CHOPIN, RACHMANINOV, BRAHMS, LISZT, MOZA - Elena Bezprozvannykh
"My first meeting with a Blüthner Grand happened in a small music school in St. Petersburg. As a little girl, playing my debut concert, I was totally fascinated by the beauty of this instrument and for me that was definitely the best… Now, having quite some experience I am thinking they same way. First of all, there's the sound of the Blüthner - an enormous palette of colors, which are at the same time very characteristic, from the deep bass register through the singing mid-range to the sparkling highest octaves and, wonder, what a smooth legato you can play in the highest register… The dynamic range is great and, talking about action, to play a Blüthner is simply very responsive instrument. You are together on a stage with a good friend… And maybe the most important is this instruments endless capacity to inspire its player…"
