It’s a wonderful close to a fascinating, intriguing and hugely rewarding disc.
—Colin Clarke, Fanfare Magazine, May/June 2016
“[Anna Shelest] is a rare and fascinating artist, someone who makes her presence felt as easily as the rest of us breathe and eat. This album will shake you by your collar: Spirit and Romance indeed.”
