A Conversation Piece

“it’s beautiful” 
- American Public Media, CD review:  A Conversation Piece

“skillful playing (virtuoso!) and moving, and each time you listen you discover more details and colors”
Radio Amsterdam, CD Review: A Conversation Piece

“Beaumont’s touch is well suited to the delicate textures and the intricate passages as well as the quirky rhythms that surface in the Ravel and Weinzweig selections. The program is well balanced and the sound is immaculate.”
Beaumont’s own Shattered Ice, which combines compositional prowess with her concern for the environment, is an ominous work"
The WholeNote (Toronto), CD Review: A Conversation Piece
