‘Héroïnes’ has been received marvellously by the Dutch press!
Cum laude by Luister Magazine, the Leeuwarder Courant, Opus Klassiek and De Gelderlander
“A rich production, with a fantastically playing solist: Vrieswijks sound stands out because its pleasant depth, a layered sound profile which is to be considered rare. With a technical easy which makes one jealous and with inexhaustible ability to use her musical ideas she’s capable to make for instance the fifteen minute long Perpetuum Mobile of Lucie Robert interesting and exciting until the end.”
“Annelies and Mark (Toxopeus) make an outstanding duo. Not only spotlessly together, but so much attuned to each other that any differences in dynamics or articulation actually go together perfectly.”
‘Héroïnes’ contains pieces for solo saxophone and for saxophone and piano from three wonderful French composers: Paule Maurice, Jeanine Rueff and Lucie Robert. These women are my personal heriones and I tell more about these pieces and what they mean to me in the cd-booklet. Pianist and photographer Maaike Eijkman made a beautiful photo series capturing the essence of every piece in a single image.
