[…] Aleksandra Panasik’s performance [was] perhaps the most significant concert of the entire [Idealistic Festival], possibly heralding the arrival of talents, who will dominate the programmes of New Music festivals in the near future. The oboist […] presented a recital of compositions for oboe with tape or electronics […] Panasik reaches out for the varied repertoire of non-apparent figures of contemporary music, both middle-aged such as Simms and Hong, and those slightly older, following their own paths, including Vees, or Iris Szeghy.
