I first learned of this disc more than ten years ago, and spent the next six months searching out a used copy. Why? The music is so damn beautiful . . . Those with ears and heart will recognize its uniqueness. Don't miss this marvelous CD this time around.

Die Lieder gefallen und haben gleichzeitig einen leisen Hauch von Nostalgie.

Un disco que hará soñar a todo aquel que lo escuche.

Agnes Baltsa canta divinamente las melodías de su patria, desde dentro, con una introspección que logra emocionar al oyente gracias a su tornasolado fraseo y una voz que suena natural, sin apenas impostación operística. Se convierte por tanto en la mejor embajadora de la música popular griega.
