Notes & Reviews:

The title of Valérie Milot's seventh CD is both a nod to the circle of valued musical colleagues she has worked with over the years and a reference to the loop as a musical concept, a seemingly simple melodic or rhythmical motif that serves as both framework and source of inspiration. This new album by the harpist features complementary approaches, and the works range from John Cage's ethereal In a Landscape to Frank Zappa's turbulent G-Spot Tornado. For Steve Reich's Electric Counterpoint, Valérie Milot recorded all the parts herself, showcasing the distinctive colours of the harp's different registers and its exceptional resonance.

A wonderful and daring album by one the world's most talented harpists.

Le Devoir
The finesse in the dosages of the Valérie Milot - Violons du Roy partnership is unequaled. The most impressive is that our graceful harpist does not fret in front of the present master of the discipline: Xavier de Maistre. What a final with Boieldieu... and for eternity!

Le Soleil
Her momentous playing is intense and puts you, whether you want it or not, in a state of attentive listening.
