Where keyboard virtuosity is called for she is dependably brilliant”
Gramophone, UK

“This is a hugely enjoyable disc played with flair, invigorating rhythmic élan and a rich palette of colours by Brazilian-born Miss Iruzun. I never knew you could do so much with a tango.”
Classic FM Magazine, UK

Clélia Iruzun has technique to burn and a strong temperament. I particularly enjoyed the 3 Argentinian Dances and Milonga by Alberto Ginastera. This well played, very well recorded disc fills a number of minor gaps in the recorded piano repertoire.”
American Record Guide, USA

“Coming from Rio de Janeiro inevitably puts this music in her blood and the 24 Latin American Dances are little gems, played with infectious enthusiasm.
…this thoroughly enjoyable dip into the Latin American world and tempted me to start all over again!”
Musical Opinion, UK

“Note how exciting the Brejeiro by Nazareth is played. The often performed tango has here an incomparable interpretation… The listener has here a first class recording. At the same time an extremely pleasant CD and a document of the Latin American and Caribbean cultures.”
Tribuna da Imprensa, Brasil
