A clacker at beginning of season
"[...] The unimpeachable clacker has admittedly been offered by the cultural office of Bad Berleburg: Friedrich Kiel´s (1821-1885) piano concerto Bflat-Major op.30. [...] Drechsel´s high art of piano playing took the central role of the evening [...]. Drechsel not only met the high technical requirements at every time, but also furthermore proved - especially in the campy middle movement Adagio con moto - his dower for subtle interpretations.
