"...and after the show i had a pleasure to watch one of the best Violinist ever in my life, with such great energy and improvise! Frederika Krier "
“Once again, working with amazing musicianship ... Frederika Krier is one of the baddest, most professional violinists around ... Just had the most incredible recording session with her and Sean Dixon ... Call her if you need strings ... Just wait till I get this track done ... You'll witness her amazing abilities as well as the incredible vocals of the fantastic one ,.. Alkebulan - 'DIGG"”
"As on the previous album (and as with Mark Feldman), the Krier's playing alternates between acid lyricism and pearled squealings" "it is an adventurous album with explorer sense and for the listener, it is one of the really amazing things to have at home." (CD review of "Laghima")
"Her open approach to all influences carries (good) surprises. On "Devoted" (recorded in 2007) each song is clearly different from the previous, the unity of the album nevertheless ensures an interesting quartet. Recorded in Berlin, "Devoted" would not be odd on Tzadik (we think at times of the trio / quartet Davka, responsible for several estimable patties on the label, and the formation Tin Hat Trio conducted by the violinist no less than Carla Kihlstedt). This is a brave self-production, well designed and balanced." "An honest record, singular and promising. And an artist who would be good to listen to on stage."
“I would be remiss if I didn’t mention how incredible were Frederica Krier and her super tight band.”
"Today Frederika Krier is one of the golden names of the next generation of jazz musicians, whether we speak about the European or American scene. She was born in Timisoara, grew up in Germany and settled in the U.S. and will perform on July 22nd....promises to be one of the most exciting moments of the Garana Jazz Festival."
“'Devoted' is a most impressive debut from a fine violinist who has yet to turn 30. The title seems most appropriate since Frederika Krier is obviously devoted to her playing, composing and bandleading. - Bruce Lee Gallanter, Downtown Music Gallery”
"there is the wide ranging concert/world violin playing of Frederika Krier, who has some of the tensile strength of Szigeti, an avant sounding approach and a kind of declamatory rhapsodism without undue sentiment" (Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review, Aug 2012)
“Jazz fusion with all impetuous youth attributes, a sound full of vivacity and throbbing rhythms that stirred the audiences craving for dance: Frederika Krier from Germany and her quartet set the tone for an exceptional evening at the Garana Jazz Festival 2011. With a remarkable technique and a strong presence on stage, this German woman has conquered the audience and had the opportunity to give a lot of autographs.”
“The second day opened with the remarkably fluid show of Frederika Krier Quartet—guitarist Peter Meyer, bassist Malte Tonissen and drummer Diego Pinera—performing a homogenous synthesis of jazz, minimalism and world music influences. Krier—an international jazz violinist and composer born in Romania, raised in Germany and presently living in New York—gave a dynamic performance characterized by tight, well-structured melodic sequences emerging from the tense, obsessive rhythmical patterns into inspiriting grooves. The first surprise of the festival.”
