Syuzanna Kaso / Press

“La brillante esibizione della pianista Syuzanna Kaszò apre la Rassegna di giovani talenti Rovigno. Subito all’inizio del concerto Syuzanna ha stupito tutti i presenti per la precisione tecnica con la quale ha eseguito la “Sonata K. 39 in La maggiore” di Domenico Scarlatti, seguita dal tocco leggero e l’estro giovanile con cui ha saputo interpretare l’“Improvviso op. 90 n. 2 in Mi bemolle maggiore” di Schubert. In seguito, la pianista ha proposto due brani di Chopin, lo “Scherzo op. 31 n. 2 in Si bemolle minore” e la “Mazurka op. 17 si è trattato di un’esecuzione impeccabile, in cui ogni nota era sentita con quella giusta vena di tristezza e con una perfetta comprensione delle caratteristiche di questa danza polacca. Dal primo libro di “Images” di Claude Debussy, la pianista ha presentato “Reflets dans l’eau”, “Hommage à Rameau” e “Mouvement” ed ha finito con maestosità con l’ottima interpretazione della “Rapsodia Spagnola” di F”

“And what a piano concert we enjoyed. Syuzanna Kaszo was from the Ukraine and already an accomplished award winner and mesmerised the audience with a virtuoso performance including Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No 8, a piece I had never heard before but blew me away with its complexity, passion and speed.”

“Syuzanne’s precision and clarity, finger perfect, is wonderful. So too the range and variation of the sound she draws from the big black box. Moments of quiet, moments of gentleness; moments of strength, excitement, exuberance; moments of anticipation, moments almost of disappointment; moments of thoughtfulness and moments of wondering; moments of reticence, moments of confidence; moments of uncertainty and moments of knowing; moments of glorious joy! The great master put all of these into one morsel of musical writing. All of life’s experience in a few short minutes. To Syuzanne has been given the remarkable ability to bring them all to our hearing and our feelings. What a gift.”

“IT WOULD appear Debussy’s Images, Book 1 is much in favour with young pianists this season with the Ukrainian Syuzanna Kaszo at Arc’s lunchtime concert including it in her programme, just three days after James Sherlock did the same in Darlington. She opened with a lively and vivacious performance of Haydn’s E flat Sonata, Hob, XVI/52, nicely balanced with its calm central adagio. This was matched by the delight of her elegiac and strong projection of the Chopin’s B flat minor Scherzo and brief charms of Scriabin’s Prelude for the left hand, op.9/1. Then it was on to Debussy’s Images, Book 1, with its three sections of Reflets dans l’Eau, the antique style of Hommage a Rameau and animation of Mouvement, all dispensed with impressionist style for the first, while a sense of a stately sarabande of the age imbued the second. The final piece, Mouvement, was lively, agile and well controlled.”

“Postgraduate pianist Syuzanna Kaszo has won First Prize in the 15th Stefano Marizza International Piano Competition. The Competition, which took place in Trieste, Italy between October 22 and 24, included competitors from Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Germany, Poland, the Ukraine and Great Britain. Finalists were asked to present a 45 minute recital featuring one classic sonata by Mozart, Clementi, Haydn or Beethoven, one or more pieces from the Romantic period and one or more pieces written post 1900.”

Due i Premi speciali, ai sudcoreani Cho Minhyun e Lee Sumi, residenti a Detmold (Germania). Al concorso hanno partecipato giovani pianisti provenienti da Italia, Slovenia, Croazia, Austria, Germania, Polonia e Gran Bretagna.”

“Ukrainsk-ungerska Syuzanna Kaszó (f. 1987) vann genast mina sympatier från första början. Jag beundrar hennes professionella och bestämda grepp om styckena. Hon utstrålar helt enkelt auktoritet. Etyderna var inte hennes starkaste nummer och Skrjabins ciss-moll opus 42 nr 5 kändes en aning halvfärdig. Stravinskys Studie opus 7 nr 4 spelade hon dock briljant i ett supertempo. Jag beundrade också karakärerna i Haydns Ess-dursonat Hob XIV/52.”
