Ik ben Valentina Tóth. Pianospelen, zang en optreden maken me gelukkig. Als ik speel geef ik alles! Ik speel om mensen heel diep te raken. Ik houd van de uitdaging om verschillende stemmen en kleuren van een orkest door de piano te laten horen grote en kleine gevoelens uit te drukken in klassieke, moderne, Hongaarse of Nederlandse muziek.|

Quotes: LUISTER, maart-april 2013 by Ruud Meijer
"In a concert hall you get to play the music for your audience just once, then it's over. ---. Because of the absence of an audience you get to focus 100% on the music, which makes a recording process much more introvert. It is just you and the music. This focus and the process of re-recording lead to new ideas. Like: Yes it really ís wonderful if I choose to play it more like this. I have noticed that during the recording sessions my love for these pieces has grown because of this.
"The first piece I ever won a prize for - I was twelve years old - was a Bartok sonatina. --- I felt that the emphasises were different than in Dutch. --- I used to play the Romanian dances by Bartok over and over. That music is beautiful beyond words! When I was asked to put together a CD programm --- I soon found out that the Hungarian music suited me well."
WELCOME to my website. My name is Valentina Tóth. Playing the piano, singing and performing do make me happy. I give everything and play to touch people very deeply. For me it’s a challenge to make the different voices and colors of an orchestra sound through the piano and to express great and tiny feelings in classical, modern, Dutch or Hungarian music. |
