BBT Project: Debut CD on EMI Classics – Sibelius and Prokofiev

“This is an unusually potent debut recording from a prodigiously gifted artist… Frang’s chemistry is disarmingly exquisite.”
Ian Julier, International Record Review March 2010

“What makes this recording so special is not so much Frang’s seductive, sinewy yet voluptuous tone, nor her effortless technical mastery; it is her startling emotional sincerity and inspired musical imagination that rivet the attention.”
Julian Haylock, The Strad March 2010

“Impressive debut recording”
Geoff Brown, The Times

“Ushering the Sibelius with a sweetly tremulous whisper, Frang heralds one of the freshest and most vital accounts of this familiar and frequently recorded work in recent years.”
Michael Quinn, BBC Online 16 February 2010

“In the first Prokofiev she substitutes flash virtuosity with an in-your-ear whisper. In the Sibelius she is fire on ice. Frang is my hot tip for 2010.”
Norman Lebrecht, La Scena Musicale February 2010
