“GABRIEL CHODOS – GREAT PIANIST. This recital was masterful and gripping from beginning to end. He belongs among the great interpreters and best pianists of this day.”
--De Tijd, Amsterdam
“Gabriel Chodos is an artistic personality combining true musicality, great piano playing, and a mighty capacity for personal and poetic expression.”
--Ha’aretz, Tel Aviv
“A GLIMPSE OF THE ULTIMATE … In the first movement of the Schubert B-flat Sonata the pianist risked everything. No one can play this music at such a slow tempo, you would think – and, crucially, “hold” it, keep it from fragmenting – unless he is Schnabel or Richter. Chodos did.
“ … Pianists like Schnabel, Edwin Fischer, and Myra Hess, the dress circle to which this artist belongs.”
