  • „.., outstanding oboist… [her] interpretations impress and hypnotise […]”                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Jerry A Ozipko „Śląsk” [„Silesia”], NO 337, October 2023, p. 74 

 

  • Ms. Panasik’s interpretations of these stellar works is both mesmerizing and captivating. The sound quality of the recording is superb. As a listener I found the frequency range to be extremely wide and the variety of timbres, both from the soloist and the accompaniments, to be a musical equivalent to a painter’s colour palette. The dynamic range and articulation textures are clear and clean. Even in spots where the timbres and textures are densely packed or layered, the oboe solo is never overpowered.                                                                                                                                                                                                                – Jerry A Ozipko, „CMC Prairie”, September 2023
  • The first concert of the festival’s main edition focused on electronics and oboe solo (Aleksandra Panasik). I liked Piotr Grella-Możejko’s „GRAleksandra” the best; I felt that in terms of the potential offered by combining electronics and instrument that piece was the most interesting. I also appreciate the fact that apart from that piece all the others on the programme were world premieres (Katarzyna Arnhold, Katarzyna Taborowska, Michał Janocha, Aleksandra Bilińska).

  • Canadian Music Centre Praire Newsletter, January 2023 about Aleksandra Panasik: This artist is a genius and every composer worth her or his mettle should write for her.

  • […] 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.

  • Currently, I’m preparing a CD featuring music for oboe and electronics by Polish and international composers. The most significant part of this project would be fulfilled with the pieces especially composed for her.  The recording is tentatively scheduled for 2023.  Updates will follow.
