"This is Lekić’s debut commercial album, and it’s a beauty."
"The program of works she has put together is so engaging and her playing so spellbinding that this is one of those rare recitals you wish wouldn’t end so soon."
"Lekić’s technical command goes without saying, but what I find particularly entrancing in listening to this release is the way in which her musical intuition allows her to strip away the “masks” of each of these pieces and bare the sometimes poignant and painful visages behind them. Very strongly recommended."
