‘Teave is in her late 30s, but sounds more like an artist of the 1950s/’60s, following in the footsteps of an Arrau or Nikolayeva: someone with an entirely natural feel for what the piano is all about and a personality that can meld ideally with the composers’ worlds,’ writes critic Jessica Duchen. ‘This is sincere, pure and magnificent artistry.’
