Reviews for Tamara’s performances on the recording and national tour for ‘Mountain’ with the ACO:

  • “Tamara-Anna Cislowska’s piano solos are also impeccable – ravishing in the Chopin and Beethoven and crystalline in Pärt’s bell-like Für Alina.” – Limelight magazine (album review, 4.5 stars, October 2017)
  • In The Daily Telegraph: “Now, three years in the making, comes Mountain, a skilful interweaving of bespoke and classical music, narration and jaw-dropping footage curated by Jennifer Peedom, a BAFTA-award winning Australian documentary maker.”
  • “Broad aerial shots of mountainscapes become a visual accompaniment to the Larghetto from Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in D Major or the hymn-like Adagio from Beethoven’s Emperor concerto, beautifully rendered by pianist Tamara-Anna Cislowska.” – Limelight magazine, (live review, 4.5 stars, Sydney Film Festival premiere 2017)
