Top Ten Ionarts' Best Concerts of 2014: Martin Helmchen



Martin Helmchen completed his USA tour on May 2014, where he performed several times in Dallas and Washington D.C. One of the performance that was held in Kennedy Center, Washington on May 10 is exhibited as the Top Ten Best Concerts in 2014 by Ionarts, a Washington-based music and art editorial.

"It is a thrill to have one's expectations for a performer, on the basis of his recordings (he signed with PENTATONE in 2007), be exceeded on hearing him live. This is what happened at Helmchen's Washington debut recital, presented by Washington Performing Arts on Saturday afternoon in the Kennedy Center Terrace Theater, where he leaped to or at least near the top of my estimation among performers of every composer whose music he played." - Charles T. Downey, December 2014
