Melemed in Hämeenlinna, Finland - January 26, 2020
Vanaja Recital Hall, Verkatehdas Event Center
Solo Recital (Beethoven, Gershwin, Gottschalk, Poulenc, Rachmaninoff, Scriabin)
Many shades of color, levels of sound, clarity of articulation, handling of rhythm - the list could go on a long time. There is rarely an opportunity to hear a performance where complete control of technique exists in the hands of a pianist who serves, first and foremost, a musical purpose. Hämeen Sanomat (1/27/20)
Melemed in Vaasa, Finland - January 23, 2020
Mozart Piano Concerto No.13 with Vaasa City Orchestra
James Lowe, conductor
[Melemed] amazed with a sparkling performance. His sound glittered like the summer sun on the sea. With sophisticated musicianship and untiring technique, Melemed conquered the full-hearted audience; just as the concerto once conquered Vienna.
Ilkka Newspaper (1/25/20)
The melodies of Melemed's fearless and distinctly grinning interpretation emphasized the life and beauty of each phrase. Melemed's collaboration with the conductor James Lowe and the orchestra was excellent.
