Artur Haftman’s Attack of Beauty
by David Moran

I don’t believe I’ve ever heard a young pianist in concert whose sound and initial attacks were as lovely and rounded as that of the Pole Artur Haftman. Maybe only Murray Perahia 40-plus years ago was as ear-opening. Sonically, Haftman’s recital Friday night in the Foundation for the Chinese Performing Arts 26th Annual Music Festival at Walnut Hill stands as a piano high point of the last few years, but it was top-drawer in many other aspects as well.
