This release is an outstanding showcase or Sarah Davachi's talents as a pianist, vocalist and composer.
The first part of Perfume showcases her ability to find new expressions for solo piano, whilst the second adds her unique, deep-pitched expressive voice; a study in bold restraint.
The final piece is the departure; an extended composition build around the interplay of two violins. No vibrato; just long notes and silence.
This is a first class album. Timely, resonant and beautiful. Michael Mueller
