Benjamin Beilman - Press

Spectrum CD with pianist Yekwon Sunwoo on Warner Classics

“Benjamin Beilman immediately draws us into the elusive sound world of Schubert’s D574 Sonata via his acute sensitivity to phrasing and dynamics… [He] leaves no emotional stone unturned, enhanced by tactile engineering of radiant allure… Beilman also brings the Janacek Sonata’s nerve-jangling changeability scorchingly to life, soaring aloft with ear-ringingly pure intonation in the Ballada, then lacerating our senistivities with hectoring explosions of sound…  His edge-of-the-seat, Kremer-on-fire take on Kreisler’s Viennese Rhapsodic Fantasietta sets the seal on a dazzling recital.”
Julian Haylock, The Strad, May 2016

“In the opening phrases of the Schubert, Benjamin Beilman is unashamedly Romantic with vibrato used throughout, discreet portamentos and a seamless legato… There’s no doubting the technical accomplishment of both players and the scherzo is a tour de force.”
Martin Cotton, BBC Music Magaizne, April 2016
