Gisela Meyer played with lyrical expression and with gripping brilliance.' (Satie, three short pieces) ECHO RÜSSELSHEIM

'She managed brilliantly to create a variety of sounds. Even the quietest notes were full of energy and could develop into a thundering fortissimo.' (Ravel, Miroirs) FRANKFURTER RUNDSCHAU

It was a joy for Adrienne and me to see you and your colleagues at the Foundling Museum today - such tremendous talent!  Do keep me on your email list, please. I was struck a couple of years ago by your rendition of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue at a City church, and you certainly keep impressing us (and such a beautiful singing voice you have!)
Best, Bob ' (trio concert on: 21 June 2015, Foundling Museum)

"Gisela is a fantastic tutor, coach and accompanist and was an extremely supportive and inspiring guide when I worked with her. My first contact with her was to seek someone to guide me through my ABRSM vocal exams. Gisela helped me study my repertoire, record my singing, break it down and understand how to analyse it. To have her with me on the day of the exams was very instrumental to passing as she was a very calm support." David Padua
