“She performs with authority throughout, whether executing notes acrobatically or murmuring softly, and her playing exemplifies poise and clarity… All things considered, it's safe to assume admirers of Bowden's Radiance will be as impressed by this latest collection.”
Textura Review
“With some amazing arrangements as well as some works by living composers, this CD offers an unusually attractive program, which is ravishingly played by the American trumpeter Mary Elizabeth Bowden…There are no limits to Bowden’s music-making. She is highly virtuosic, but also masters the most delicate and lyrical tones…her art of colours and the warmth of her tone are particularly striking. There is nothing shrill, nothing seems uncontrolled, and everything points to an absolutely sovereign mastery of the instrument.”
