Nicholas Angelich

Nicholas Angelich


Instrumentalists — Piano

"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
