The Piano Works of Karl Goldmark
2012-10-01 Gramofon, Budapest
"The edition of Goldmark's complete piano works started by Hungaroton in 2006, has arrived at its 4th CD. The series has proved to be successful both nationally and internationally. The first CD and its performer were nominated for the MIDEM-prize in Cannes and received also the category award from Gramofon.(...)The 4th CD, released this summer, is a collection of the four-hand works in the astonishing interpretations by Tihamer Hlavacsek and Balázs Szokolay.(...)This series has not yet reached its completion(...)and, based upon the foregoing, we are strongly cheering for its continuation."
(István Németh G.)

Goldmark Complete Piano Music
2010-10-01 International Piano, London

...(Hlavacsek) dives into the music with evident enthusiasm: he manages to accomodate both the Schumannesque Schwung and the Mendelssohnian textural delicacy.....three hours of pleasure - and a rich repository for pianists looking for some audience - pleasers with which to enrich their repertoire.

"The 26 years old Tihamer Hlavacsek... proved his talent at the New York concert as one of the most promising artists of his generation, especially by the astonishingly virtuosic performance of Prokofiev's Sonata Nr. 6."
