Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine
Laments score over bouzouki-led jollity in this surprising early crossover disc from the ever-distinctive Greek mezzo. Baltsa brings depth and unexpected tone colours to the Theordorakis settings.

Gramophone Magazine
it is a compliment to her to say that if one heard this record &dbquo;blind" somewhere... one would sit up and take notice of the quality of the voice and the urgency of the delivery but would not immediately take it for that of an opera-singer going down-market...
