idil biret

Idil Biret's Chopin recordings are really great. She won the 'Grand Prix du Disque Frédéric Chopin' for them in 1995.

She was also a genius-child in Ankara: "hypersensitive to music as a baby, she gained the ability to hear a tune and reproduce it on the piano when she was only two."

The Turkish parliament passed a special law, and paid for her musical education in France.

This is a nice story about making the 'Complete works of Chopin.'
