"You don’t have to be terribly learned musically to realize that
something wonderful has transpired in Bach’s monumental set of
variations on a ground bass. Sigurjónsdóttir does the hard work
for you, so just sit back and enjoy!"
"This is first-rate
interpretation, singularly sensitive to all the nuances of the music while
bringing out the sheer beauty of the parts. If you already have a version
or two of these pieces, this will augment the pleasure of the music with
another reading, one that is vivaciously modern. If you do not have the
music, here's your perfect chance to get an excellent version. Bravo!"

"... contained some of the most adventurous and abstract music of Dark Music Days....
and expressive journey that showcased Sigurjónsdóttir’s mastery of the extreme upper
register.... The Sorceress, a multi-movement work written for Sigurjónsdóttir,
brought the program into furious overdrive.."

Review of all concerts on day three of Dark Music Days
"Hlíf Sigurjónsdóttir plays with a great purity of
tone which she can tailor to the historical and individual style of the
pieces she performs. Her bowing is always flexible and accurate,
and her sense of pitch is precise. She is an excellent representative
of music in a very musically intense nation"
