Notes & Reviews:

This is Berit's first solo CD featuring works inspired by nature.

American Record Guide, November/December 2012
I've played Napoleon Coste's Source du Lyson for decades, and I think it's one of his finest works. It doesn't seem to have shown up yet on Naxos's continuing Coste project, and the only recording I've been able to identify is a deleted Denon disc by Shin-Ichi Fukuda. Strong's performance is fine, though I really think the last movement should be faster and the opening fifths less harsh. Still, she plays tastefully, without the wayward rubato that usually mars performances of Coste's music.
