"Playing through her wonderful collection of Chinese and Japanese songs you only later realise what she has achieved. While her settings of the stronger melodies such as Fukien Boat Song and Heavenly Bird leave nothing to be desired - this latter, by the way, is a marvellous piece of guitar writing worthy of Tarrega - she has also managed to breathe life into the extremely simple Cradle Song ... and Nursery Rhyme, making of each something quite compelling" - CLASSICAL GUITAR MAGAZINE
