Here is what fans say about Beneking´s music:

The kind of music we look for but never find... here you showed us it still exists!

Chopin is alive :-)

amazing valse, I fall in love with the harmony of that piece, wonderful to start the new year with positive notes

Your valses are all so different but form a cohesive body of work. Really nice

...your melodic craft such a great gift for all piano lovers...

playing 'le désir éternel' is experiencing a fine tear-smile-balance. Adorable sensitive music.

You had me in the first measure.... Lovely. Lovely. Lovely!

wonderful...this is melting with the snowflakes on my window...what an image...thank you for this moment!

sometimes I cannot find the appropriate words to express my feelings when I listen to your music

Toujours cette douce melancholie... Superbe!

This piece really doesn´t belong to our time. It is suitable for an audience that has a quiet, more human pace.
