Tsybuleva reveals deep empathy for the hushed anguish cocooned in the heart of Brahms. Passionate, exquisite, hypnotic.
Every magical note of Tsybuleva’s performance held the audience spellbound by her artistry.
Tsybuleva’s playing exudes poise from the outset. She plays with real lightness and the resulting clarity is revelatory without being analytical in the Pollini sense. The result is positively illuminating, finding profound beauty and tenderness.
Poetic lyricism, combining geniality with grace.
Clearly a sensitive soul…she knows how to float long, lyrical lines with a cushioned singing tone, and how to blend rippling passagework with the orchestra… a fine artist in the making.
