Interview on Andante with Ilke Boran, Issue February 2013
As i first met Emre Yavuz, he was thirteen. In the winter of 2003 he came to the conservatory with his sister Elif Damla. We were all excited to be witnessing the talent of this young pianist who had been studying under the “Idil Biret Law”. What was even more impressive than his stunning musicality was his confidence despite his young age and his serious yet sympathetic attitude. He started his art and his perspective on the art evolved. Today he is a forward-looking pianist winning first prizes at competitions. We had a chat with Emre about the last five years of his life.
Interview with Öykü Nur Akkol on Sufflor.com, January 2012
I heard Emre Yavuz for the first time in 2006 at a concert he gave with Fazil Say in Izmir and i was amazed. I feel lucky that i had the chance of meeting him years later and doing an interview with him. I’m very thankful to him for the time he took to do this comprehensive interview. I hope you’ll enjoy reading it.
