(...) Anne Kaasa offered the audience a richly colourful interpretation of Ravel’s Concerto in G. Benefitting from the company of a judiciously accompanying orchestra, we fully appreciated the wonderful virtuosity of the soloist, as well as the refinement of her beautiful contrasting style for this extremely imaginative composition.

(…) Anne Kaasa perfectly enhanced all the beauty of this score (Grieg’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra), thanks to her flawless technique and a great musicality. Truly moments of bliss!
La Marseillaise, (France), May 2000 read more
She does not invest in shallow and consensual approaches (…) Gaspard de la Nuit and Miroirs unfold to our ears with liberties that will shock us, as those of Samson François, which cause the purists’ rage (...) This artist’s path deserves to be closely accompanied!
Diapason, (Paris), April 2000 read more
Anne Kaasa’s phrasal liberty and rhythmical tension are convincing, as remarkably is her absolute control over the sonority.
La Stampa, (Roma), March 2000 read more
Anne Kaasa reveals a huge mellowness and a fluent toucher, well adapted to the Ravelian style. In Gaspard de la Nuit (…) she plays over a colourful record of flowing and nuance filled measures (…) With the easiness she shows in evolving through the ambiguities and the complexity of the Ravelian universe, Anne Kaasa proves to have become part of the restricted circle of interpreters of the French composer’s works.
Le Monde de la Musique, (France), March 2000 read more

The fluidity of her playing and the profoundness of her interpretation (Ballad), the precision (From Holberg’s Time) and the delicacy of her touch distinguish a pianist that stands out in the crowded world of today’s soloists (…) Her Lyric Pieces do not stand back to those performed by the best interpreters (Gilels, Setrak, Oppits, Andsnes, Rubinstein…)
