Fijal gives concerts in France and abroad.
"While it was common in the 19th century to pursue a career as a composer and a performer at the same time, the phenomenon has become extremely rare nowadays, and even more so if it involves a woman. A. M. Fijal raises the glove with panache, playing Beethoven's Sonata No. 32, Schumann's Kreisleriana and works of his own composition. The writing is contrasted and energetic. One is taken by the vigour of the tone, the clarity in the phrasing. The contrast between the works of Beethoven or Schumann and his own is rich in sometimes surprising similarities." P. Thane in AOL Classical Music.
"She's coming, Fijal, music in, music out, with her earthly clues. She sits down at the keyboard and it's not like usual, because she knows there's no sky without earth. That no angelic song without a dark belly. And especially not of me without the other, the others. She's a unique artist because of that." N. Huston
