“Redefining the art of going solo…(Andonovska’s) stage ability is something to behold…Andonovska does not simply ask for your attention, she demands it. a holistically excellent performer at the helm.” ★★★★ The Age, Melbourne International Arts Festival review
“Andonovska’s control of her instrument is immediately applaudable and the cyclonic energy of her playing commands an intensity of listening that is rare to encounter. Equally strong as an artist and a technician, it is the former that shines through and defines Andonovska as one of Australia’s leading artists, collaborators and curators.” – Music Trust Australia, Album Review of A Way A Lone A Last
“Aussie flautist wows with technique, invention and style…” – ★★★★ Limelight Magazine, Album Review of A Way A Lone A Last
