"a truly excellent interpretation"
"The German pianist Julius Asal has an exciting dynamic range, a rich palette of colors and a very secure technique that ensures great transparency. This allows him to give a truly excellent interpretation of the piano suite of the ballet Romeo and Juliet. Between berserk stomping and the most enchanting lightness, there is much to admire in this often breathtaking performance. No less impressive are the Four Pieces op. 4 and the Pensées op. 62. Asal’s playing is of extreme clarity, it is sonorous and interpretatively highly persuasive."
