“…de Saram handles the music with absolute certainty and assurance… De Saram has done a wonderful job in transcribing the music [Locatelli], and performs it with a flourish… Her rendition of the theme is beautiful, stately, and sombe… The two artists are clearly talented musicians, and one can only hope they will continue to collaborate.” (All Music Guide ****)
