Her music is somewhat difficult to describe but not to listen to. I strongly recommend this interesting and beautiful record of pieces by a fascinating and genuinely musical artist. It deserves every success.

MARIETTA VEULENS. Piano Cubano


…vital, creative and highly enjoyable. The movement from classical forms into improvisation is seamless, while the multiple rhythms employed lead to complex episodes that are nevertheless instantly attractive and satisfying. Even her contemporary forms have an energy that holds the attention as she explores new areas. Excellent.

November-December 2006

All of this is original music by Cuban pianist Marietta Veulens. She gives the impression she has recorded a series of improvisations. What suggests improvisation is her rhythms and her rhythmic elasticity.

Veulens is a sensitive player with a keen sensibility for piano timbres. Her pedaling technique is extraordinarily refined - a real pleasure to hear.

This is music with a strong, distinctive yet withdrawn character, suitable for concentrated listening or for dreamy contemplation. Well worth investigating.
If you like Piazzolla you will find him lurking somewhere here in her use of fairly traditional often minor key harmony as well as in searching and leaping melodies. If you like Ludovico Einaudi likewise he is here in the meditative, minimalistic moods and the ecstatic repetitious cadences.
