RECENT PROJECTS

quotes

“The Amsterdam-based Aspasia Nasopoulou’s Olinda & Eudoxia bursts forth with moody, softly spun contemporary lyricism. Nasopoulou’s delicate writing gave Zeniodi an opportunity to display the more subtle, nuanced side of her pianistic persona.“

Lawrence Budmen

South Florida Classical Review, April 14th 2013

“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.“

Thea Derks

about 'Lelia Doura' & 'Nachtwerk' Cultuurpers, 2015

“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

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

Tom Bickley
