Some reviews...

“Acclaimed pianist Julia Dahlkvist works the infinite detail of the piano works of Debussy with superior technology and audible joy out of the sound. This is Monet for the ears. In crisp Studio Master quality, this release is an exceptional treat.”
“Brilliant young pianist, Julia Dahlkvist gives a stunning performance in the last of this series”  www.linnrecords.com    


 ”Här bjöd Julia på magisk upplevelseteater. Känsla och tanke ingick förening. Intuitivt bytte syn och hörsel plats med varandra. Ögonblicken sträcktes ut i tiden till de underbaraste strömmar av händelser, virvlande, dansande, jagande, gnistrande. Suveränt!”
- Sverker Magnusson, Arvika Nyheter  


"…pianisten Julia Mustonen spelade "Tavlor på en utställning" av Modest Mussorgskij. Hon levererade en tolkning som fullkomligt tog musten ur oss. ... En högklassig solist måste gå in i musiken och bli ett med instrumentet… Julia levde sig in i musiken med starka och känslosamma gester. Hon var så fysisk och ömsom smekte hon och ömsom tyglade hon flygeln, som om de vore en jättekropp. Storartat spelat och flera inropningar och långa, välförtjänta applåder."
- Jan Bergquist, Gotlands Tidningar         


“…det vigtigste for hende er selve den musikalske udfoldelse i al dens nuancerigdom. Både teknik og musikalitet triumferede i den første bog af etuderne, hvor Debussys vanskelige, teknisk-pædagogiske og indholdsrige musik nok blev spillet brillant, men samtidig med et afvekslende musikalsk indhold. Afslutningen med Lisle joyeuse var helt fantastisk.” - John Christiansen, Jyllands-Posten, Danmark
