Pianist Can Çakmur has received international acclaim for his second album “Liszt-Schubert: Schwanengesang” released last October.

“…it is rare to hear the cycle as a whole. In hands as gifted as Çakmur’s, however, their cumulative effect is all but overwhelming. …Given the wealth and range of his musical imagination, not to mention his genuine pianistic gifts, I believe Can Çakmur is someone from whom we can confidently and happily expect to hear a great deal more.”
Patrick Rucker, Gramophone

“Faced with an artist who is still so young (he was born in 1997), it is customary to say that he is promising. It doesn’t take much to say that he is already a master.”
Patrice LIeberman, Crescendo
