Fanfare Magazine, David DeBoor Canfield – December 2018

CD MOMENTUM – DUX LABEL

 

In short, Waldmann’s beautifully thought-out and executed performances of each of these masterworks will serve to convince the listener that a important new exponent of the keyboard has arrived on the scene. Heartily recommended not only to pianophiles but to music lovers of every stripe.

The French pianist has a big tone, but perhaps what is more important is that she creates a sound appropriate to each of the composers on this disc.

A terrific disc, thought-provoking and fabulously thought through in terms of repertoire and presentation.

 

Jazzport.cz, Jan Hocek – 9th October 2018

Disc MOMENTUM – DUX LABEL

 

The touch of the pianist is endeavouring to find a sound pallet and a unique color, returned with emotion, without denying the passage of time, on the contrary; and to work with an obstinacy fascinated on the variability of the expression and the dynamics.

[…] The musicality first of all, the technical control and the emotional depth mark the identity of the charismatic pianist. In her first album released on DUX, the artist dedicates herself to some masterpieces of the piano romanticism.

Marc Parella, ex artistic manager – 21th september 2018

 

I have known Blandine to be a consummate and sensitive pianist possessing an impressive performance style. Her artistry is unique and her interpretations, especially of Scriabin are clear and thoughtful.

The young musician played, once again, with a lot of passion, feelings, giving to the interpreted works, a particular light. Her refinement of touch did not leave the public insensitive.[…] Both musicians in total harmony, made only one, during all the show.

Invited at the Closerie in 2016, Blandine Waldman had dazzled the public. […] The public was amazed by so much subtlety in their play, one on his bow and one on her keyboard.
