"The main theme of French harpist Claire Augier de Lajallet's CD Memories is nature, « and water and desert are the two extremes, » says the soloist, « from Canadian rivers to Arctic icebergs, through the Middle East and homage to the maqamat, a traditional musical instrument, to Turkey with memories of the Hittites. »

Several pieces are by contemporary composers, others by those who lived in the 20th century. There is no music that would be considered avant-garde. All the works are melodic. In accordance with the theme, there is a lot of nostalgia in the program, a lot of thoughtfulness, with positive and negative feelings, which the harpist expresses sensitively. The CD thus provides the listener with a pervasive atmosphere of trust, peace and fulfillment. Especially in our time this is a welcome enrichment."

"This is a highly original program, interpreted with such musicality that one almost regrets that she abandoned the piano at an early age to devote herself to the harp...[...] Once again, Claire Augier de Lajallet displays a rare musicality on an instrument that is also very well recorded."
