WITH COMPELLING POWER….Birgitta Wollenweber in Rheingau Musik Festival set interpretative and technical standards, which will not be easily reached- hithero it has been the most convincing of all recitals. Fascinating through the performance itself…with ferocious lust she is ploughing through the keyboard….at the same time understanding and wondering…the noticeable intention to impart to the audience something tantalising, harmonious.
…deliberately provided developments with well-measured reserves, which allow climaxes to emerge at the appropriate points.
The listener is electrified, literally absorbed by the performance, which clearly and beautiful shows to its advantage, is more aimed at colours than at effects and intuitively impresses through its authenticity.
