George Wallace’s (A Fool in the Forest) write-up of the New Lens Series Performance in Pasadena, CA.
“Juhi Bansal’s Wings, as its title suggests, draws on the form of birds in flight, and would have been entirely at home on wild Up’s “Ornithology” program back in January. Wings is a strong, appealing piece and, alongside the Shatzer Trio, was the item on the program I would most hope to hear again.”
“…The program in Pasadena worked, in the manner of a fine multicourse meal, by dint of variety and its combination of the familiar and the unexpected, bound together by a commitment to quality of performance.”
Chang Tou Liang’s Review in The Straits Times of The Lost Country of Sight (performed by the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory New Music Ensemble, Singapore.)
Soaking in Surprises describes the piece as having “lucsious strains” and “light and transparent (scoring), enabling the words to be highlighted.” In Mr. Chang’s words, “another reading will be keenly anticipated.”
