“In Introducing one of the pieces Ms. Sadeh referred to the Kabbalistic notion that music is the song of the heart, a song coming straight from the heart. This indeed would have been well applied to the whole set. This entirely extraordinary performance was a spiritual, even mystical experience in the truest Kabbalistic sense.” Rainlore.demon.co.uk, November 2003
