Reviews:

"The everlasting 1888 Gymnopédies are there as well as the lesser known Gnossiennes and Ogives and the intriguing three Sonneries de la Rose, all immaculately played by a pianist who clearly is totally at one with her country and its enviable, if at times slightly off-beat, musical heritage." - Roger Steptoe, French News, September, 2008

"Intelligence is manifested throughout with a strong emphasis on the protean spirit of Satie." - Valeurs actuelles, September, 2008

"Celebrates the originality of this Satie project with a talent and conviction we cannot
Read more resist." - Jean Roy, Monde de la Musique, October, 2008
