Review: LOWELL LIEBERMANN: Piano Works, Vol 3 – David Korevaar – MSR, Fanfare, Nov/Dec 2018

“Pianist David Korevaar, to whom Liebermann has dedicated at least one work, displays his considerable gifts in these readings. He dashes off the technical demands of some of these works with aplomb, while caressing the simple and quiet sections to bring out every last bit of their poetic nature. Here is a pianist with palpably clear musical gifts and intelligence, and one who should be widely heard.”  |  full review

Review: Lowell Liebermann Piano Music, Vol 3, MusicWeb International, November 2018

“What makes the disc especially notable is the exceptional pianism of David Korevaar. He has already given us excellent discs of Chopin works and Hindemith sonatas, both for this same label. He has also recorded CDs of JS Bach works, Schubert sonatas and much chamber music. After listening to his interpretation of these Liebermann works, I can’t imagine significantly better performances. Moreover, I doubt whether you’ll get the chance to hear much competition in this repertory at any time in the near future. For Liebermann admirers then, this disc is probably essential; for those wanting to explore good contemporary piano music, here’s a fine prospect.”  |  full review

Review: Lowell Liebermann Piano Music, Vol 3, Gramophone, October 2018

“Needless to say, one needs boundless resources of technique, tone, color, and musical imagination to do Liebermann’s keyboard aesthetic justice. David Korevaar possesses these qualities in spades and manages to create an individual character with each selection. Both the present disc and Korevaar’s two earlier Liebermann volumes brilliantly reflect this pianist’s probing individuality and firm commitment to the material.”  |  full review

Review: AN ADVENTUROUS UNDERTAKING: Piano music by Lowell Liebermann, Music & Vision, 8/11/18

“With this third volume, David Korevaar continues on his journey of recording all of Liebermann’s works for the piano between 2001 and 2017 and the programme is, maybe, one of the most imaginative and representative of the composer’s immense gifts to write music that is modern and yet so beautiful and attractive…This is an adventurous undertaking, superbly performed and sumptuously annotated and recorded.”  |  full review
