'Magen uses every means at his disposal to create a compelling emotional narrative that draws the ear irresistibly on … and takes us into a rarefied dreamworld of magical colours and dynamic shadings that creates the strange impression of the notes floating free of musical gravity. The same is true of his microsensitive accounts of four pieces from Brahms’s Opp 116 and 117, so poetically soothing as to make the piano originals appear almost unwieldy by comparison. By way of contrast, Magen also includes two spectaculars by harp legends Ekaterina Walter-Kühne and Henriette Renié that shimmer and glow as if emerging from some distant heat haze' (BBC Music Magazine)» More
