Marietta Petkova

'… Like a Toots Thielemans she continues to search from the grand piano for the gold and pure love behind the notes. And that alone makes her one of the greatest pianists of our time. '



Marietta Petkova is a celebrated pianist whose exceptional quality was quickly recognized in The Netherlands and far beyond. Her interpretation of Rachmaninov’s Études-Tableaux is legendary.

In 2000, she conquered the Amsterdam public with a memorable Rachmaninov recital in the Concertgebouw. “Grandiose Petkova” and “Pianist Petkova: ideal Rachmaninov” read the headlines in the daily newspapers De Telegraaf and NRC Handelsblad. Her live recordings from Lausanne of Rachmaninov’s 24 Preludes were applauded by the international press.

Marietta Petkova is currently enjoying a thriving career as a soloist and chamber musician. She is known for her authenticity and versatility.


“Whether Rachmaninov, Bach, Brahms or Liszt, Petkova is phenomenal” (HP/De Tijd). Marietta is a Steinway Artist and has her own CD series on the Bloomline label.
