PRESS REVIEWS


     "Carolyn Shuster-Fournier delighted her audience. Her concert at the parish church in Saint-Tropez drew a large crowd. The public gave her a standing ovation at the end of her hour-long concert. She conquered her public." (S.A., Varmatin, December 3, 2008);

 

     "Karolyn Shuster Fournier opened this series in hommage to Olivier Messiaen by the Festival Musica in Strasburg. She chose registrations on the Walcker organ at the Saint-Paul Church that were most adequate for Messaien's Ascension. She did this with subtlety, bringing out the linear writing of Lenot's compositions, which she had intensively meditated." (Marc Munch, Dernières Nouvelles d'Alsace, September 25, 2008);


     "Alternating powerful pieces with more subtle ones, the entire concert left a most beautiful sentiment of peace and deep inspiration, close to that of prayer." (Dimanche Bruxelles, October 5, 2008 (after my concert at the Saint-Servais Church in Brussels).

 

     "The final organ concert of this season was a final bouquet. Carolyn Shuster Fournier offered music that touched each listener." (Union, August 20, 2008, after my concert on August 31 at the Soissons Cathedral);
