"A doctoral student at Brandeis, she clearly is already a master composer (and an accomplished concert pianist)... The piece (Reminiscence) was beautifully crafted, its roughly ten minutes twice tracing an arc from relatively lively to quiet, sustained music, ending unexpectedly but very effectively with one of the latter passages. Amar... has a fine ear for sound as well as sure compositional technique, and I look forward to hearing more of her music."

David Schulenberg, The Boston Musical Intelligencer

"This piece for two pianos and percussion (Rage Against the Dying Light) stands out by its permanent dialogue between the instruments and it's held with a strong hand and poetic by the pianists Jeremie Moreau and Guikkaume Bellom, while the percussions of Emmanuel makes rich the singularity of the music. A goldsmith's work for an accessible piece."
