Notes & Reviews:

From the first floating tones on "The Year", composed by Fanny Mendelssohn upon completing a journey to Italy, one feels transported into another era. Els Bieseman's Fortepiano debut CD set exactly those strings in vibration that have been lost on the modern concert grand. The dreamlike sound of the Pleyel grand beautifully fits the transparent, structured and supple playing of the young Belgian.

American Record Guide, January/February 2013
The playing is much to be praised. She tends to be more mercurial in the faster pieces and moves more quickly in the slower ones. Her technique and expressive abilities are never too challenged, and she easily moves through all of the surface charms of the music. The engineers have also done their job very well.
