From the NRC Handelsblad: “The Bulgarian master pianist Marietta Petkova plays the grand piano with impressive virtuosity, but in the end everything orbits around more than just the notes. Petkova essentially makes music from her feelings. As a result, her play is sometimes erratic, but always pure and expressive. That is precisely why Petkova appears to be the ideal pianist to reach Schumann's turbulent emotional discharges and the hypersensitive reflections of Chopin. The result is just as intoxicating and inescapable. "
