Quest …is a stunner. One can hardly imagine a better spotlight for women composers than what Remy Johnson has achieved with Quest.

— ArtsATL

The sonorities and effects that Remy Johnson draws from her instrument are dazzling, sometimes astonishing. There’s an entire orchestra in that harp, with passages as declarative as a brass section, along with subtle nuances that operate at the level of a whisper.

What all the tracks share, however, is the imaginative commitment of the harpist, who brings all the beauty and power of the music to the fore.

Quest, then, both serves as a thoroughly rewarding presentation of Johnson’s solo harp artistry but also a compelling argument on behalf of female composers then and now.

Johnson puts her exemplary technique in full service to the composers and their works on this special and even invaluable collection.

Her playing dazzles throughout, and her command of the instrument and realization of the pieces are unerring.
