Ossi Tanner

“The playing of this romantic virtuoso twinkled of all technical brilliance needed but he really has the gift to get his piano touch to sing and reach you with clarity, which is really important. His poetry is elegantly controlled, while at the same time giving an impression of youthful spontaneity.”
