Biography

The newspaper “Südkurier” describes Aloisia Dauer as “young, of great talent and at the beginning of a promising career”. She shows in her playing a “perfected virtuosity” and the newspaper “Die Badische Zeitung” describes her performances with “no timidness of emotions”. The “Schwäbische Zeitung” wrote equally enthusiastic about Aloisia’s concerts that she is “diving into the stylistic mannerism of the pieces with her virtuosity in a dynamic and sensitive way” and her “sensitive but also passionate sounds” thrilled the audience.
