"...This disc has the potential to become extremely popular..."

Rob Barnett - MusicWeb - 30 April 2003
 


"...all these pieces are superbly played by Kirsten Johnson and well recorded: this is a repertoire well worth exploring."

Raymond Head - TEMPO - A Quarterly Review of Modern Music Volume 57 - July 2003
 


"...Kirsten Johnson, who has made an intensive study of Albania’s music over the past decade, expounds all this repertoire with manifest sympathy and skill. An unexpected delight."

BBC Music Magazine - June 2003


                     Artistic Quality 10      Sound Quality 8
"...Kirsten Johnson’s loving mastery of this music and skillful, nuanced pianism are a delight. What is more, she’s able to find just the right tempo, sound world, dynamic range, and character that allows each piece to emerge as an individual entity, from her exquisite legato in Zadeja’s lyrical writing to the Ibrahimi Toccata’s piquant fingerwork."

Jed Distler - Classics Today -26 August 2003


"These enjoyable collections are the latest in a number of ethnic piano anthologies on CD. The Albanian program presents music that is rarely if ever heard by Ibrahimi, Lara, Komino, Gjoni, and other 20th Century composers...Don’t expect innovation or even conservative modernism, but do expect limpid melody, haunting modal harmony, folkloric atmosphere, and rhythmic vitality. Johnson plays with nuance and color; the recording is rich and resonant."

Sullivan - American Record Guide  - April 2004
