“Barere is an Anton Rubinstein in one hand, and a Liszt in the other.”
Alexander Glazunov

“Pianism in its highest estate was heard from Simon Barere, who enthralled his large audience with a display of overwhelming artistry at his recital last night in Carnegie Hall. Truly a giant of the keyboard, Mr. Barere provided a series of performances which were not only marvels of technical skill, but equally remarkable from the stand point of tone color and poetry...The speed and evenness of the octaves, the uncanny facility of the ‘quasi glissandi’ thirds and sixths, not to mention the supreme command of all the other technical problems involved, resulted in one of the most amazing feats of pianism heard in this city in many a year.”
Noel Straus
The New York Times (Nov. 20, 1949)
