Performance Reviews

Danielle Perrett, harpist“Sheer beauty of sound and virtuosity of technique were always subordinated to thoughtful musicianship and keen interpretative intellect.”
The Times

“… the Spohr Fantasia in Cm was, in a single word, unforgettable. One could never have imagined that the harp was possessed of both the potential and nascent means to convey sounds and tones … and the emotions and sensations that Danielle Perrett unleashed on an unsuspecting and enthralled audience.”

“Charmingly played … and served up with forethought and skill.”
The Guardian

“Miss Perrett’s virtuoso performance of the (Sophia) Dussek sonata (C minor) … was simply brilliant and dynamic playing of a single-action concert harp, marked by dexterous fingering and a memorable singing tone.”
Belfast Newsletter

“Zabel’s La Source was finely played by Danielle Perrett.”
Musical Opinion

 

“In the Concerto for Flute and Harp by Mozart [with Jonathan Morgan] … the soloists’ exchange was truly galvanising.”
The Independent

“In the Flute and Harp Concerto, K299, the solo parts were elegantly and accurately played by Rachel Brown and Danielle Perrett…”
The Times

“Danielle Perrett played her 1801 instrument with passion and aplomb … interspersed with interesting tales of French harp makers fleeing revolutionary Paris to the safety of London.”
The East Anglian Daily Times

“…To allude to harpist and partner-in-musical-excellence as an accompanist would be rendering a grave disservice to a musician of the first order. Danielle Perrett played the harp with a lyrical, intense virtuosity that revealed facets of the instrument seldom heard. ”
