"A sparkling recital played by Canada’s No. 1 harpist and one of the best from any country." – Ottawa Citizen

"Toronto harpist Judy Loman is in splendid form in the seven works presented in this solo release… Loman's magnetic rhythm and her sense of colour - one often seems to be listening to an orchestra - make her an ideal advocate of this music…" - The Globe and Mail

"Toronto-based Judy Loman.. serves up an array of virtuoso, sweeping glissandos… Buhr's Tanzmusik: 5 Pieces for Solo Harp... is truly a 'masterwork'." - Rick MacMillan, Classical Music Magazine

CD Review has called Judy Loman the world's best harpist, and the Toronto Star says she "can hold any audience spellbound". This CD presents some of the greatest works for solo harp written in the twentieth century, including music by Salzedo, Britten, Tournier and Buhr.
