Review of The Return in Audiophile Audition Magazine
This glowing review by Steven Ritter appeared in Audiophile Audition Magazine on February 23, 2016.
“Riveting sound and brilliant performances add up to a most desirable set.
I had no idea that such a powerhouse pianist as Raffi Besalyan worked so close to me. Just downtown from where I live, as Assistant Professor of Piano at Georgia State University, resides this technical wiz and bold Rachmaninoff master.
On the basis of this recital, the recital hall at the university must be rocking these days. Besalyan has a frightfully gripping command of all this music, navigating its formidable technical traps with ease, and displaying a wonderfully lively tone and subtle sense of phrasing.”
