“…a straightforward and sensitive pianist….rich with imagination and technical prowess…” (Anthony Tommasini, New York Times July 2011) 

“Here again, Gesa Luecker conveyed the very essence of the music. Without a trace of showmanship or artifice, technically flawless, outstanding musicality.” (E.van den Hoogen in audiophil No.5/2010 on Gesa Luecker’s Debut CD of works by Mozart and Prokofiev, released by GENUIN 2009) .
