SEASON 2013/2014




„His playing was elegant without being prim, flowery without lacking backbone, delicate while nurturing a firmness of tone. Clarity ruled, but warmth was ever-present. The Larghetto found him at his best; it stirred like lace curtains in a languid breeze.“

The Orange County Register, Timothy Mangan, 01.12

„Lazić plays with palpable heart, with genuine spirit that derives entirely from the music itself, with dexterity, subtlety and insight that make this recital thoroughly compelling.“

The Telegraph, Geoffrey Norris, 20.10.11

„The soloist was Dejan Lazić, a powerhouse performer whose playing combines strength with beauty.“

The Guardian, Tim Ashley, 2.09.11

„Lazić’s bright legerdemain and cunning balancing of weight and measure was entirely convincing; his cadenza a kaleidoscope of transformations.“

The Times, Hilary Finch, 15.08.11

„Lazić’s pianism rippling and sonorous, orchestral playing subtle and collaborative. I have never heard such an account of this masterpiece, every note picked out with telling inevitability.“

The Birmingham Post, Christopher Morley, 27.05.11

„Lazić is a classy artist, with a fine range of colour, taut trills and immaculate fingerwork. […] There’s much of beauty in the Croatian’s reading – his quality of sound, especially in the quieter regions, remains one of the pleasures of his playing.“

Harriet Smith, Gramophone Magazine, 05.11
