Notes & Reviews:

Throughout her career, internationally heralded harpist Yolanda Kondonassis has found herself fascinated by the luscious creations of French composer Maurice Ravel. Ravel: Intimate Masterpieces is a celebration of Kondonassis' longtime love of Ravel's music -and a celebration of the great roster of Oberlin Conservatory of Music talent that came together with her to record the album on campus in January 2013. 'This disc is especially meaningful because I was able to make it with such wonderful players and to celebrate the wealth of artistry and musical opportunity that lives at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music,' says Kondonassis.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The three Songs of Madagascar, for soprano and small ensemble, are as emotionally intense as anything I've heard from Ravel; and Ellie Dehn's performance is stunning. The Five Greek Folk Melodies for voice and harp are much lighter. The melodies themselves are fairly simple, and the harp plays mainly accompanimental patterns. It was recorded flawlessly in the Conservatory's recording facility, and the excellent notes were written by James O'Leary, an Oberlin professor of musicology. This is art.
