Sensible Sound, August 2002

"Naxos scours the world for good material, and this time they found it in Norway. The sound is very clean and detailed (critical for harp), with a wide stage and very precise imaging."

Peter Knapp
The Patriot Ledger, April 2002

"Listening to Norwegian harpist Ellen Sejersted Bodtker perform music by Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy on a Naxos CD gives me a warm glow as well as a guilty feeling. Although such sensuous music isn't fattening, one thinks it surely must be a sinful pleasure. Nevertheless, indulge. With its quiet soothing voice, the harp is ideally suited for the pastel colors and ambiguities of French Impressionist composers."

John Puccio
Sensible Sound, February 2002

"The 11 works in the collection represent the early twentieth century in French composition... Played on harp, with string, clarinet, and flute accompaniment, they are more airy than usual, Ms. Bodtker's playing imparting a further sweetening effect to the music... Naxos's sound is flattering to the soloist, too."
