quotes

“In her music I hear occasional echoes of her Greek background and a feel for energy and sonority that, at one extreme, is not so far from Xenakis; but she also has a lyrical gift and a feel for instrumental possibilities that is quite distinctive.“

Bob Gilmore, 2010

“Het mystieke werk van de Grieks Nederlandse Aspasia Nasopoulou komt regelrecht uit de ziel. Zij schrijft melodisch en maakt inventief gebruik van hedendaagse technieken en klankkleuren. Haar muziek is eerder sereen dan expressionistisch. Net als componisten Bach en Pärt stijgen de noten van Aspasia als het ware boven het menselijk lijden uit.“
