"Anne Riegler performs magic with her piano. [...] She is clearly part of the new movement among pianists to play with instead of at the piano. Riegler reveals composers on a deep level. Her take on Ravel was delicious. She both rippled notes and ripped through them with a delicate sense of line and form. A masterful technician, it is her sensitive listening as she plays that distinguishes her and gives much pleasure to listeners who can hear Ravel afresh."
"An inventive approach to present the piano music of Maurice Ravel that bears direct relation to other composers and contrast them with each other. [...]. There is so much passion and power of creation in Riegler's playing. [...] A successful debut."
"Accomplished pianist Anne Riegler engaged the audience with her charming introductions to each piece and held our attention with some fine playing."
"Anne Riegler, who traveled back to New York for her studies at the Mannes school shortly after the concert, amazed the audience with a playing that was both impressive and expressive. One can be looking forward excitedly to the progression of the carreer of the young pianist. On the ladder, it can only go upwars."
Fränkische Landeszeitung, 2015
"She raised the most wonderful sounds out of the piano like a master of sorcery."
"incredible levels of shading and nuances of colors."
"Sounds to be addicted to. A playing that touches."
Der Patriot / Geseker Zeitung, Nr. 232, 2013
"impressive way of touch."
"You want to dwindle into her soft pilows of trill chains and filmy, cobweb fine ornaments of the notes of the melodie.."
"It would have been possible to hear a pin drop, so immense was the fascination of the audience about the young woman's way of playing the piano."
"a true pleasure to listen to.
