"Carolin Danner plays music from Spain or with a Spanish influence from Domenico Scarlatti, Debussy, Ravel, de Falla, Granados to Albéniz and José Zárate with sophistication, a fiery temperament and a feeling for timbre."

CD recommendation, neue musikzeitung 12/15 (Franzpeter Messmer)

 

"A highlight of pianistic art and maturity was provided by Carolin Danner to the clearly enthusiastic audience in the last concert of this year´s concert series in the Bürgerhaus Neuer Markt in Bühl. (…) To the pianist from Munich, the grand piano appears more than just an instrument. To her, it is a medium for storytelling, with which she not only entertains, but also deeply moves the audience. Her focus lies on exploring various nuances of emotional depths, where she provides complex interpretations from Beethoven to de Falla. Without question her technique is brillant, but beyond that her performance always transports meaning and substance of the musical score."

Badisches Tagblatt 12/15 (Udo Barth)

 

"Carolin Danner gave an overwhelming performance with her program Spanish Impressions, which she played at the Max-Grundig-Klinik. (…) Her sonatas were energetic and rich with musical ornament and dynamic contrast, sometimes forceful, sometimes mellow, and always perfectly virtuoso.  (…) She received enthusiastic applause not only for her recital, but also for the accompanying presentation of musical and historical background with which she led through the evening."

Badisches Tagblatt 11/14 (Karin Heinecke-Dietz)

 

"The piano recital, played in the ancient council chamber, became a gripping acoustic experience, where Carolin Danner displayed brillant technical skill and a keen sense for emotional and energetic accentuation. (…) Pianist and piano became as one (…). A piece of the Spaniard Isaac Albeniz and "Andaluza" by Granados were an emotional finale for an extraordinary evening."

Mainpost 09/14 (Rita Gress)

 

"The pianist enchanted the audience with Spanish music. (…) Danner's interpretation of the virtuoso, energetic and dreamlike Fantasia Baetica left the audience astonished and full of appreciation."

Lohrer Echo 09/14 (Judith Rybol)

 

"Not only did she play with a brillant technique, but in particular she did so with a great musical intuition and differentianted sensitivity. An emotional rubato came out clear and coherent, well aligned with the atmosphere. (…) Danner displayed great sensibility as a cultural guide."

Süddeutsche Zeitung 08/14 (Reinhard Palmer)

 

"Spanish impressions is a collection of Spanish piano music over three centuries, put together with great care."

Deutschlandradio Kultur 07/14 (Philipp Quiring)

 

"It has been long since the intricate Fantasia Baetica by Manuel de Falla has been heard with such fierce seriousness, and both Enrique Granados' Andaluza as well as Albeniz' Asturias appear very authentic because of the straightforward style of Danner's recital. Her rhythmical precision ultimately also benefits the spanish impressions of Debussy and Ravel."
