David Schwartz
American Record Guide, November 2014

Overall, Ms. Zdybel has smooth, clear, and deliberate articulation. Her tone is clear, even, and complemented by a very well-crafted and controlled vibrato. © 2014 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide

Ronald E. Grames
Fanfare, November 2014

It is something quite special: an appealing recital of unusual and unusually interesting compositions for bassoon, played by an extraordinarily gifted young bassoonist.

The last pieces are the most challenging and the most modern…[In] Elliott Carter’s Retracing for Solo Bassoon…Zdybel emphasizes expression and drollness where it is too easy to concern oneself with speed…Edison Denisov’s Sonata for Solo Bassoon is an even thornier matter. I enjoyed the work in her performance…there is something for every bassoon fancier here, and it is all extremely well done. © 2014 Fanfare Read complete review
