Press comments


WDR 3 TonArt

„The young pianist proves to have a discerning mind, with a keen sense of different musical styles.”

„A musician who knows the blueprints of his pieces by heart and advances with a clear mind.“

Nicolas Tribes, 3rd August 2015
SWR2 Treffpunkt Klassik

„One can only congratulate Dupree on his program because it betrays an unconventional and independent personality.”

„A very personal interpretation“

„Marvelous“

Lotte Thaler, 2nd September 2015
Südwest Presse

„A new star pianist“

"The elegant debut of a great pianist!“

„Deep-reaching and weightless playing“

Burkhard Schäfer, 18 July 2015
Rhein Main Magazin

„Fantastic pianist“

Magazin 8/2015
Gewandhaus-Magazin

„We hear in conjunction with excellent craftsmanship: straightforward playing, deft handling of heterogeneous literature, delicate tone, and grasp for the great interrelations of complex facture.“

„Extraordinary maturity, technical perfection, a repertoire of significant diversity and refined interpretation.“

Martin Hoffmeisters. Magazin No. 88
American Record Guide

“The three Berio works (…) are perfectly served by Dupree’s white-hot technique. The Berg has more passion and verve than many performances (…). And the Eötvös, a memorial for Berio, is atmospheric and haunting, revealing the great tonal variety of Dupree’s playing – Lovely sound."

Haskins, May/June 2016
