“ Talent and determination… rich lyricism… Roussanova’s work is ripe with lovely unabashedly Romantic melodies, full of nostalgia and reflection, but just as often propelled by lively rhythms... It is, if I were to choose, the most engagingly written work on the program."

Ronald E. Grames - Fanfare Magazine (Jan/Feb 2017)

“ Roussanova’s Moments of Arrival, a three-movement suite that flows along graciously, its opening Pointillistic section giving way to long fluid lines that caress the ear of the listener… the lush harmonic language… This is a most ingratiating work, and would be a real audience pleaser on any concert."

David DeBoor Canfield - Fanfare Magazine (Jan/Feb 2017)
