BBC Radio Scotland 'Classics Unwrapped'
'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.'
