THE WASHINGTON POST, 21 July 2008:

„If there were any doubt that Dylla ranks among the most gifted guitarists on the planet, they were dispelled on Friday night”

 

HERALD TRIBUNE, 27 March 2009:

„An absolutely stunning concert. (...) seemingly effortless technique and intense artistry (...) impressive technique and deeply musical interpretive skill”

 

SAN FRANCISCO CLASSICAL VOICE, 2 April 2011:

„...Dylla gave a brilliant, deeply poetic recital ... Dylla captivated a large, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable audience with sensuous tone, rhythmic flexibility, and deeply felt emotion”

 

THE WASHINGTON POST, 14 April 2013:

„This was playing of almost Romantic-era passion - and it was impossible not to be moved by it. Dylla played it with extraordinary delicacy of touch, profound concentration and, you felt, almost starry-eyed affection. (...) a rare balance of control, passion and explosive power. If there were any doubt that music of the 21st century can be as personal and deeply expressive as that of the Romantics, it ended here.”
