With this recording, a dream has come true, and I could not have imagined a more beautiful program for my debut album. The music manages to open up a very unique world of experience with unimagined emotional territories. I look forward to taking my listeners on this stirring musical journey and inviting them to dream and feel strongly - says Esther Birringer.

 


'Birringer has both the imagination to think in orchestral terms and the sensitivity to convey these sound spaces to the listener with her interpretation.'
Piano News, September/October 2021 issue

 

 

'She enchants ceaselessly with the piano versions of three famous ballet pieces. [...] The pianist performs all this atmospherically gripping. It' s fantastic what she gets out of the keys. [...] All three piano versions are immense challenges in technical and interpretational terms. Birringer handles them with great tonal imagination and mature technique.'
