Review of outstanding concert in Vlissingen
A Perfect Match
Amsterdam, Tue, 2. Apr 2013In the Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant of February 25th 2013 reviewer Jeanette Vergouwen highly esteems the performance by pianist Marietta Petkova and violinist Vesko Eschkenazy.

“Marietta Petkova and Vesko Eschkenazy form an ideal musical duo, playing with enormous intensity, yet at the same time clearly enjoying their playing together,” writes Jeanette Vergouwen in Provinciale Zeeuwse Courant on a concert on February 24th 2013 in Vlissingen's St. Jacobskerk. “Listening to these two musicians is an immense joy. Mozart's Sonata in E minor KV 304 may have sounded a bit monotonous, but Debussy's Sonata in G major got an impressive execution, with a tormented Coda of the Allegro and a second movement that sounded nicely Spanish and got just the right verve.
After the interval Marietta performed an ample selection of Prokoviev's Visions Fugitives, small miniatures with a wide range of emotions, all performed in exactly the right mood and with immaculate technique. The final piece of the concert, Brahms' Sonata in D minor, a rich composition with a diversity of themes, got a performance of the highest level. The violinist excelled and the dialogue between the two players was perfect. It was not only musical firework display, the performance was really deeply moving.”

More news about Marietta Petkova:

- Magazine Klassieke Zaken nr. 33, 2 of April 2013 presents a cover story on Marietta Petkova, in which among other she explains her preference for live recordings. “I don't want to make a recording knitted together with a thousand snips, there is absolutely no life in that. I want to find the emotions and intentions of the composer when he put his composition on paper.”

- In Magazine Luister Marietta's new live-CD of the famous Sonata by Franz Liszt was rewarded with five stars. 'With an inextinguishable inner fire sorcery as well as poetry find their way under Petkova's nimble fingers. In addition, the articulation is transparent, the timing subtle and the architectonic view convincing.”
