“I can’t think of another recent concerto release that, beginning to end, affords greater pleasure. » Gramophone (Editor’s Choice) December 2015`

 

« There has been a lot of star-is-born noise around Beatrice Rana, and it might be justified. Teamed with Antonio Pappano and his Accademia di Santa Cecilia orchestra, she is a compelling storyteller: her playing has all the sustained force and perfectly weighted brilliance you could want, but has a glint in its eye, too .» The Guardian December 2015

 

“She brought unerring grace to Mozart’s seemingly effortless, melodic inspiration and floated Mozartean figurations with lyric ease. In the slow movement [of the Jeunehomme concerto], which reveals depth of feeling through harmonic experimentation, Rana didn’t make the mistake of overdramatizing. And she demonstrated that the impetuous return to high spirits in the last movement really does belong to the young.” Los Angeles Times, December 2014

 

“Beatrice Rana’s execution of Schumann’s hugely ambitious and monstrously difficult [Symphonic Etudes] was simply jaw-dropping. … Ms. Rana gave the audience a fascinating reading that was full of moments exhibiting Schumann’s dual music personas for which roles the performer folded herself into perfectly” Seen and Heard, February 2014

 

“Beatrice Rana is an artist one can now expect great things from” Classica (Paris)  December  2015

 

“Prodigious Italian pianist” Le Figaro July 2015
