|What the Critics are saying about
Micheline Laudun Denis in Concert
...She marvelously evoked the classical spirit of Scarlatti,Mozart
and Beethoven. The Mozart particularly, had a delicious rhythmical
movement, a beautiful, limpid sonority, legato phrases molded
with sensitivity. ..In the Beethoven, the essence of the music
was skillfully expressed with clarity and precision. ..The cheerful,
gently dissonant aspects of Sonata No 3 from Kabalevsky were
admirably executed as well, by the straight and delicate touch
of Mrs. laudun Denis.
Peter G. Davis
...The ability to immediately create the adequate climate, to
instantly penetrate every author's atmosphere, a
perfect technique, and above all, a great musical culture: These
are the fundamental qualities that make
Micheline laudun Denis a pianist of uncommon category. ..
Dr. Michele Tomaselli Esumen
...A piano recital of rare perfection was given yesterday evening
at the Pan-American Union by Micheline
Laudun Denis ...How well she plays, this pianist! Her mastery
throughout the recital was complete. Her
interpretation of Bach was wonderfully articulated, balanced,
controlled, powerful. The Beethoven was of
contained dynamism with each note well in place and all played
like a long swell ...'For Piano"by Debussy had
the most beautiful interpretation I can remember having ever
heard: Sublime, profound, resonant.
"The Washington Evening Star and Daily News"
...Yesterday evening's recital indicated thatwe were in the
presence ofa pianist like we don't encounter every
day. Her musicality is impeccable, her technique prodigious,
her sonority fully and solidly measured.As powerful as the sound
could be in the'forteU passages, she was able to soften the
percutant contours. The Beethoven sonata, the masterpiece of
the program, had the most impressive interpretation. This piece
admirably leads itself to a detached, objective execution, and
Mrs. Denis' play was so clear, so energetic and incisive, that
the music attained by itself its proper dramatic summits without
having to become emphatic.
La grande qualité de ce récital est d'avoir présenté
des pièces qui reflètent les préoccupations
de compositeurs qui recherchent la communion entre interprète
et auditeur pour livrer le caractère intime. Tous les
éloges vont à la pianiste qui a su inciter pareille
union grâce à la maîtrise de son art.
