Review [Nora Skuta] "… unlocks the enigmatic mechanisim and humour of the writing with pellucid clarity." Classic FM Magazine
Review "All in all then, an essential purchase." International Record Review
Review  "Skuta's is a beautifully articulate and sensitive interpretation." BBC Music Magazine - Double Five Star Rating

Having met Cage and performed some of his pieces in 1992, she has refined her technique in exactly the way any virtuoso might grapple with the idiosyncrasies of a more conventional instrument. The resulting performance is unparalleled…" 1001 Classical Recordings You Must Hear Before You Die - Cassell Illustrated 2007
