"The soloist’s success was based on his complete mastery of the finest details of the score, combined with a technique that allows him to transform those details into sound. He sits still at the keyboard. No superfluous movement interferes with his control over the weight applied to each note. Allied with his capacity to focus attentively on every phrase, Dank’s superb mechanical precision allows him to convey the delicate changes in volume and color that reside only in the human voice." - Beethoven Piano Cto. No. 4 with the Spokane Symphony, THE SPOKESMAN-REVIEW, October 8, 2017

"In a work that calls for considerable bravura, the pianist easily tackled blizzards of runs and bombastic octaves. Yet this wasn't empty virtuosity. Every phrase had shape, and every note was deeply felt. 

He played in the romantic style, lingering on melodies and communicating with a singing tone. The second movement was lighter than air. He soared through cascades of virtuosities in the finale, and seemed to be having fun doing it." - Saint-Saën's Piano Cto. No. 2 with the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER, August 15, 2017

"...Dank delivered a marvelous performance, rich and colorfully articulated. It was clean enough—free of excessive pedal or sentimental chord accumulation—to showcase both Rzewski’s modernity and Chopin’s lyricism. He played with a practiced fire." - Rzewski and Chopin at UChicago Presents, THE CHICAGO MAROON, April 10, 2017

"...Ran Dank made a spectacular Chicago debut at Mandel Hall. The Israeli pianist delivered a powerhouse performance of Frederic Rzewski’s The People United Will Never Be Defeated! that was as dazzling in its pyrotechnics as it was expressive and insightful...Ran Dank’s performance was so remarkable and complete in every way, it’s hard to believe anyone else could have done better." - Rzewski, and Chopin at Mandel Hall, CHICAGO CLASSICAL REVIEW, April 8, 2017

“He didn‘t merely perform a rhapsodic program of Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt; he attacked it, displaying confidence, a deep understanding of the repertoire and a relaxed demeanor that helped focus attention on the music and enabled him to play incredibly difficult pieces.“   - Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt at College of Charleston‘s Piano Series, THE POST AND COURIER, October 1, 2014

“Mr. Dank played brilliantly, giving a muscular and virtuosic performance that highlighted the varied sonic palette of the piece, with its Brahmsian sweep, fiendish octaves and serial techniques.“   - Ursula Oppen‘s 70th Birthday Celebration at Symphony Space, THE NEW YORK TIMES, March 11, 2014

“Dank offered a confident and rich performance. The complex, yet flowing lines were interspersed with robust tutti sections, aggressive punctuations giving way to deft, elegant ornaments, earning spontaneous applause from the audience...“   - Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2 w/ Kansas City Symphony, KANSAS CITY STAR, November 30, 2013

“It was charming to see this couple on the verge of matrimony playing these sweet, wistful and charming waltzes with such sensitivity and taste.“   - Duo recital w/ Kate Lee, Le Poisson Rouge, THE NEW YORK TIMES, September 4, 2013

“... bringing out all manner of subtle effects never heard in the orchestral version. Even the brutality was more brutal, as the sudden sforzandos and dissonances stood out more than they do in the orchestral version.“   - Duo recital w/ Kate Lee, Portland Ovations, PORTLAND PRESS HERALD, November 2, 2012
