★★★★☆ - Volkskrant
A curious and determined young woman goes out into the world. It is still unclear where her path will lead and what she will discover, but it is always connected to the castle, the symbol of her unforgotten origins.
"My debut album La fille et le saxophone is a tribute to dreaming, letting go and moving onwards, zest for life, love, adventure, and playfulness."
Besides a selection of the works for saxophone and piano that I love most, a brand new piece was written by Dutch composer Celia Swart. Rhaida El Touny, an Egyptian illustrator dedicated to depicting powerful women, made an illustration for each piece on the album. Want to order a copy? Go HERE.
