“I appreciated especially the musical quality of the playing. Malinee Peris has given a very refined interpretation of this French music. I will broadcast this CD (BR127) on the Radio Station Klara (the Classic Radio of Flanders), so a lot of Belgian Radio listeners will enjoy the playing by Malinee Peris.”
Luc Van Gool, Producer VRT (Belgian Radio and Television)
