Opening recital
“Tirimo's playing belongs to a past generation of 'greats'. Listening to him I conjure up aural images of Solomon, Arrau, Kempff, Serkin, Schnabel and Backhaus. Throughout the evening one was consistently aware that this supreme musician placed himself entirely at the service of the composer.” Bill Newman, Music and Vision.
