” This is the most idiosyncratic, temperamental music that is in the very good hands of the French violinist Annabelle Berthomé-Reynolds who knows how to put these works in a beautiful light. This is the first clear, handy recording of all this material together ” 

BACEWICZ reviewed by Norman Lebrecht : ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Slipped Disc, UK 🇬🇧
We are absolutely thrilled to have been reviewed by the great Norman Lebrecht, what a treat! 
Also in the famous MyScena /La Scena Musicale/ LEBRECHT WEEKLY and the not least famous LEBRECHT LISTENS chronicle in Ludwig van Toronto Magazine.

In the Lebrecht Album of the Week :

« An accomplished violinist and friend, the eight works on this release for violin and piano reveal as much as we are likely ever to know about [Bacewicz’s] inner world. Every work of Bacewicz informs us that her life was hard and her freedoms limited. But once the conversation starts, you really don’t want it to end. »

« The excellent players here are Annabelle Berthomé-Reynolds (violin) and Ivan Donchev (piano). They really get it. »

Many, many thanks, dear Norman, we are extremely touched!
