Review of CD "Longing" by Whole Note Magazine (Sept 2016)

Here is a recent review of my harp CD Longing by Mr David Olds, Editor of DISCoveries, Whole Note Magazine, Canada: "Another disc perfect for a quiet mood is  Teresa Suen ’s debut CD  Longing ( ) . Suen has the distinction of being the first Chinese harpist to obtain a Doctor of Music degree......While the music is more or less modern – including works by Paul Hindemith and John Cage – it is surprising how mellow the overall feel of the disc is. .......   Suen has chosen a well-balanced program focusing on calmness and warmth, beautifully played. She will be a welcome addition to the local music scene."
