EVER AFTER 
Nadina Mackie Jackson
Exquisite, sparkling bassoon playing showing off the full range of this rarest of orchestral instruments; think Pagannini of the bassoon.
"...by turns lyrical and rhetorical...Jackson's intense musicality...a memorably expressive performance."
National Post, June 2, 2003
"...incredible capacity for both virtuosity and poignancy...a brilliant mix of dazzling technique and gentle lyricism."
International Double Reed Journal, June, 2003
"...very expressive, phrasing especially lovely, technique excellent."
Danielle Charbonneau, "Music for a while", Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, May 7, 2003
"...a sparkling performance of Telemann's Twelve Fantasias...exquisite bassooning...and incredibly talented musician...I can't imagine them being played any better."
