Between eternal love and futile passion (...)

Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, December 19, 2007, Peter Lahr

Virtuosity in Conflict (...) The expansive dynamics aim for orchestral dimensions. Kiliç derives from it a wealth of culinary motifs and melodies (...) Mannheimer Morgen, January 22, 2011, Monika Lanzendörfer

Exposed sound paths to the abyss (...) And Kilic presents the (almost) complete Janácek not only through this selection but also through her approach to interpretation. She balances harshness and sweetness, cantabile and sharp edge, already evident in the more accessible collection 'On Overgrown Paths,' with its almost earworm-like (and also abbreviated) beauties. But not uncompromisingly. (...) A strong impression lingers. Mannheimer Morgen, February 21, 2014, Hans-Günter Fischer

CD Review: (...) And in the magnificent Sonata 1.10.1905, the pianist truly finds a matured impetus, constantly interrupted by secondary thoughts and musical experiences, allowing the listener to grasp the form of the work. (...) In this interpretation, Asli Kili gives this sonata a serious but consistently coherent idea that convinces. This is truly magnificent piano playing! Piano News, May 1, 2014, Carsten Dürer

SONIC BLISS: The Scriabin Code 'Seeing: Hearing' Rodenstein Records... That Scriabin's highly virtuosic piano music still sounds tonally original and refreshingly modern today is proven by the wonderful pianist Asli Kiliç in seven selected solo pieces... Kulturkomplott/CD Review 'The Scriabin Code,' September 8, 2015, Hans-Jürgen Schaal

CD Review: NMZ CD Recommendation (...) no one from the younger generation of pianists does justice to the extramusical content in Janácek's work musically and pianistically like Asli Kilic. Neue Musikzeitung, April 1, 2014, Andreas Kolb

In a total of three sets, pieces are played in an alternating fashion, skillfully and at times robustly interpreted by Asli Kilic... The symbiosis works wonderfully because Albrecht's jazz pieces capture the gesture or even literal quotes of the corresponding Scriabin piece and clothe them in jazz attire, always revealing their own unique approaches... Mannheimer Morgen, October 10, 2015, Sebastian Herold

...The Mannheim pianist Asli Kilic played the originals, allowing the bold harmonies, diminished and augmented sevenths, ninths, and elevens to take effect, just as the whole narcotizing impact of the sounds, along with their magic and vibrant colorfulness. The mystique of Scriabin's music, the shimmering, iridescent, and radiant qualities that Asli Kilic captured, was reflected in the arrangements of the ensemble. Rheinpfalz, October 10, 2015, Rainer Köhl

Versatile pianist...finest dynamic nuances are revealed and savored. Even if one has already sensed it, Kilic confesses: 'These are pieces that are very close to my heart.' Mannheimer Morgen, July 12, 2016, Simeon Holub

...Most impressive, however, was her fifteen-minute recital...turned the concert into a magnificent event... Badische Neueste Nachrichten, May 23, 2016, Peter Bastian

...the dramatic, emotional performance was of impeccable clarity and exemplary transparency...with nobility and passion, Kilic tackled the infernally challenging pieces...thanks to superb technique, the music maintains a crystal-clear transparency even in places where Liszt sounds bizarrely profound, manic, and torn...the well-filled Pilgersaal echoed with enthusiastic applause. RZ-Rhein-Lahn-Kreis, July 20, 2017, Karl Haxel

„ impressive tapestry of sound unfolded, repeatedly interrupted by thundering eighth-note runs from the virtuoso soloist... In the second movement, after the wonderfully expressive, quiet introduction by the strings of the Stamitz Orchestra, Asli Kilic convinced with her clear, crystalline sound. The virtuosic solo cadenzas in the third movement were played by the pianist in a sober tone, perfectly attuned to the classicistic nature of these passages. With breathtaking runs, accompanied by the delicate pizzicato of the strings, she ascended to the abrupt, radiant conclusion. The audience in the sold-out Rechbergsaal of the Bruchsal Civic Center responded enthusiastically..." Landfunker, January 28, 2020, Luisa Mergel.

Porträt vom Asli Kiliç

Asli Kilic begins piano lessons at the age of 5 in her hometown Frankfurt am Main am Dr. Hoch's Conservatory.  Her music studies took her to the music academies in Mannheim and Cologne, where she completed her studies with professors Paul Dan, Ragna Schirmer and Arbo Valdma. She also received important impulses from Peter Feuchtwanger, Therese Dussaut and especially from Natalia Zinsadze, celebrated pianist and student of the legendary Heinrich Neuhaus.
