Un concert formidable à la Philharmonie. Merci.

Camille Kerger

Arzu and Gamze Kırtıl guided the audience with experience, confidence, precision,delicatesse,and an unbelievable level of concentration and coordination through tempo and mood variations, seemingly without effort… They felt as one, yet with the musical impact of two wonderful pianists, leaving the impression that they were not trying to outshine each other, rather just wanting to be the best they can be together.

…d'une intimité et d'une profondeur rares… un éclat tout particulier sous les doigts agiles des deux artistes…. Les pianistes, toujours aussi unies et concentrées, ont trouvé maintes teintes subtiles pour charmer leurs auditeurs… Extrême virtuosité… soirée exceptionnelle… Les interprètes ont su mettre en valeur non seulement les passages paisibles et recueillis, mais également ceux qui semblent libérer un humour grinçant et une vive tension, offrant de la sorte une interprétation aux contrastes poignants… Arzu et Gamze Kırtıl ont réussi à impressionner une fois encore par leur technique, leur ensemble, un sens aigu de l'équilibre sonore. Toutes deux ont privilégié les lignes mélodiques, soutenues par un emploi très méticuleux de la pédale.

Luxemburger Wort

A challenging repertoire for the recital by Arzu and Gamze Kırtıl, two promising Turkish pianists, which started with great aplomb and finished powerfully between heartfelt applause from the public… The venue provided a suitable atmosphere in which to savour the depth of the notes which floated in the air from the magical hands of the artists
