Hans-Peter Zimmermann

“Mr. Zimmermann played with lean yet gleaming sound and melancholic beauty. As the theme turned

agitated, he summoned thick, pulsing tone, even while dispatching bursts of notes with crackling energy.”


New York Times - 27 February 2015


“Zimmermann’s poise, sweet expression and unforced athleticism were a constant pleasure, and the

ruminative approach into the first-movement cadenza was dovetailing par excellence. Best of all was the

relaxed approach to the finale, normally rushed off its feet, but here mercurial and shapely.” - 2 October 2014
