'Magen plays cleanly and precisely, making every note fully audible, even at the softest dynamics, and he articulates inner details that could be missed among the sweeping glissandi and dense chordal passages…delightful.'

'Sivan Magen's latest album is a Francophone fantasy of virtuosity and sensuality, says Alexander Rider, who finds that elusive je ne sais quoi in this young harpist's refined performances.'

Sivan Magen - French Reflections - BBC Radio Scotland 'Classics Unwrapped'


20 September 2015
BBC Radio Scotland 'Classics Unwrapped'
Jamie MacDougall

'This is lovely, French harp music…[Tournier’s] Sonatine is stunning. The last movement requires great virtuosity, but that’s not a problem for the player who’s been called a magician when it comes to playing the harp. Here is Sivan Magen…the star of the harp world…glorious, glorious music, beautifully played.'
