quotes

“Zeer bijzonder is ook het stuk"Raw Rocks"... Dit zeer afwisselend maar ook pittige stuk vormt daarme een waar feest voor het oor.“

Ben Tafijn

Nieuwe Noten 10/11/17

“About Ikaros: wonderful interaction between the various art forms, great synergy!“

Thea Derks

“The dramatic climax of the disc surely is Aspasia Nasopoulou’s Lelia Doura (2012)“

Tom Bickley

American Recorder (summer 2015)

“..und bei den "3 Stücken auf Persische Dichtung" von Nasopoulou eine flexible Rhythmik und aparte freitonale Klänge.“

Christoph Keller for Utopia/Rubini/Ochto

NordWest Zeitung 7/11/18

“..Nasopoulou brings the story of Ikaros to life as well though the video projection. Beautifully done, with text by Henk van der Waal: “to rise and rise because of the wings" and music in which memory and desire coincide. Stunning.“

Els van Swol

Een jaar met de Grieken, Blog voor muziek, toneel , beeldende kunst 16/12/2018

“Nasopoulou has a great affinity with old music, and she knows how to connect it to modern ways of playing... ...also special is the music that Nasopoulou wrote to 'Nachtwerk', the poetry cycle in seven parts of Micha Hamel, who himself recites his verses with DoelenKwartet. With subtle musical gestures Nasopoulou accentuates a word, an underlying meaning, not a moment drowning out the performer.“
