“We have found in Cyprien Katsaris a genuine lyrical tenor of the piano. His gift is nothing less than that.”
“I have no hesitation in claiming that as a musician and a pianist, he is a unique phenomenon, both on account of his astonishing, I would even say superhuman technique and his faultless musicianship.”
