Notes & Reviews:

Eighteen vignettes, several musical landscapes, two different instruments, one common language. A story about reality, sounds of the universe, and the world of dreams are magically told by Maria Oldak (violin) and James Baillieu (piano).

American Record Guide, May/June 2014
This is a recording of short pieces. The musicians (she's Polish and he's from South Africa) present themselves in the notes as approachable, attractive young people with impressive credentials. They both play extremely well, and they play very nicely together.
