Staccato sections sputtered out with verve, note-clogged runs whizzed by effortlessly."

"Also marvellous was Blaauw's seduction-dance with 'Eva', basset horn player Erin Simmons"
 Parool, Amsterdam, Netherlands

"Erin Simmons on basset horn ... in the important role of 'Eva'.
Convincing was the almost animal-like mating ritual with which she was calling 'Michael' ... all of this was very effective."

NRC Handelsblad, Netherlands

"'Eva' on basset horn, also excellently performed by Erin Simmons"
