"Nancy Bloomer Deussen is based in the SF Bay area and her work is distinguished by a genuinely sweet lyricism which is most satisfying in the tunefulness of its slow movements."


"Bloomer Deussen of Palo Alto has an irrepressible lyric penchant."

Peninsula Times Tribune (California, USA)

"Slow movements are songful; fast ones perky with every note in place. She is not afraid to be beautiful."
