Mrs. Vlasse’s music has been extremely well received by critics, audiences and professional musicians. Her "Neo-Romantic" works have been so appreciated by her colleagues that many teachers (including Antoinette Perry of USC) have asked for copies of scores so they can include these pieces in their student's performances and competitions.
Nearly all of Mrs. Vlasse’s music has been premiered; her music has been performed by Grammy® winning pianist Nadia Shpachenko, as well as other influential award-winning pianists, such as Mina Perry, Robert Thies, Bryan Pezzone, Hoang Nguyen, Arsen Jamkotchian, Brendan White, Carlos Marquez (Spain), Tri Nguyen (France), Joaquim Bonal Sarro (Spain) and Harout Senekeremian. Other performers include GRAMMY®-winning soprano Hila Plitmann and multi-award winning soprano Sangeeta Kuar, Grammy® nominated cellist Éru Matsumoto, Long-Beach-Symphony principal cellist Cecilia Tsan, Los-Angeles-Opera principle cellist John Walz, and LA-Philharmonic violinist Mischa Lefkowitz, as well as the string quartet comprised of: Ben Bartelt and Anna Corcoran, violin, Virginie d'Avezac, viola, and Mark Bassett, cello, and harpists Marcia Dickstein, and Jacqueline Marshall.
David Wilcox, the director and choreographer of the Longbeach Ballet, has also choreographed dance to Danaë's music. Ballerina Aitana Jordan, and figure-skater Madeline Stammen (with Cirque Du Soliel) have also incorporated Danaë's music into their performance routines.
