Nadina Mackie Jackson, David Swan and Aleks Shurmer

Worldly music for bassoon and piano...A panorama of ravishing music written for bassoon and piano, including new works created especially for Nadina Mackie Jackson and David Swan.

"...Jackson and pianist David Swan seem to exult in its fiery, romantic spirit...a rhapsody of tremendous force and turbulence...Ms Jackson is superb here, completely secure in her wide-ranging technique...one of the... finest bassoon recitals have have been lucky enough to review."

Steven Ritter, The American Record Guide, September/October 2004

"I was awed by the gorgeous sound Nadina produces on (the) bassoon...I have to consider this my favourite bassoon recording of all time...one of the finest independently produced CDs I've ever seen...performance, recording quality, packaging and notes are absolutely excellent."

Merlin Williams, WholeNote Magazine, September, 2004

"Nadina Mackie Jackson [is] a fantastic woman-artist-bassoonist of the highest order!... absolutely sparkling...an astounding surety and accuracy but still leaving plenty of room for expression and grace... beautiful, richly emotional expression... the performance, recording technique - everything - is so exquisitely done!... I am insanely jealous of NMJ's bassooning - technique,musicianship, artistry - the whole package! Buy this CD so that I won't be alone in my jealousy!"

Ronald Klimko, International Double Reed Journal, June, 2004

"...Ms Jackson and Mr Swan have a real feeling for how this music should resound, and I can't imagine a better performance."

National Post, June 2, 2003

International Double Reed Journal, June, 2003
