"Angelich…(gave) a strikingly imaginative performance (Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2, Boston Symphony Orchestra/Masur) that kept the ear constantly engaged through its subtle explorations of color, texture, and harmony… conjuring unusual veiled sonorities, drawing out inner lines that often go unnoticed, and dispatching rapid passagework with remarkable lightness and dynamic control. Pianissimos floated effortlessly into the hall.” Jeremy Eichler, The Boston Globe, October 2011
“Mr. Angelich played with refinement, rippling passagework and clear structure…he intriguingly highlighted dramatic nuances and harmonic turns with a pronounced emphasis that took you by surprise.” Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times, August 2009
“Those subtle inflections of touch and dynamics; that impulsive, improvisatory feel; the poetry, the probity: he (Angelich) made me fall in love with the work as if for the first time.” Geoff Brown, The Times, August 2009
Award winning pianist Nicholas Angelich has been praised for his impressive interpretations of classical and romantic repertoire. The Daily Telegraph raved, “Angelich always compels with his concentration and colouristic subtlety, and his illumination of Brahms's intricate contrapuntal textures.” He has also gained recognition for his interpretation of 20th century music, including performances of works by Rachmaninov, Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Bartok, Ravel, Messiaen, Stockhausen, Boulez, Tanguy, and Pierre Henry, who dedicated his composition “Concerto for piano without orchestra” to Mr. Angelich.
His chamber . . . collaborations include critically acclaimed performances with Dimitri Sitkovetsky, Joshua Bell, Gérard Caussé, Alexander Kniazev, Jian Wang, Paul Meyer, the Ysaye and Prazak Quartets, and Gautier and Renaud Capuçon. His recording of the Brahms Trios with the Capuçons for Virgin Classics was awarded the German Record Critics’ Prize. Mr. Angelich has also released recordings for Harmonia Mundi, Lyrinx, and Mirare.
In the 2010-11 season Mr. Angelich will make his recital debut with the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Concert and Lecture series, and his Los Angeles Philharmonic debut under Stephane Deneve.
