Press Quotes

“Unlike on the previous album called Joy for Joel, this time, Beata Hlavenková made do with only herself during the recording: you won’t hear any other sound than the piano on the less than forty minutes long recording. Thanks to the abundance of composition ideas that the protagonist does not waste in vain, the listener does not get bored even for a second.” ― iDNES

“The pianist deliberately works with the interpretative potential of the music, rendering carefully thought-out dissonances particularly pleasing and teasing. The topicality of the motif is always the priority. In a small timeframe, it is necessary to quickly transform it from its past form and to keep looking ahead. This makes the piano-playing lively and transformative.” ― FULLMOON
