Many of us remember Rampal's iconic recording of the Bolling Suite. Granted Rampal's recording is a challenging act to follow, but Choi quite successfully brings a fresh and definitive look to the score. The playing is expressive and nuanced. This CD should be on the 'must have' list for serious flutist.

Choi's transcription gives the flute the opportunity to indulge in the surging passions and grand gestures the Romantics added to our musical dialogue.

Jasmine Choi and HELLO STAGE
2014-07-31 Town Topics (Princeton, NJ),
"Mr. Laycock, Ms. Choi and the Buffalo Philharmonic presented a mid-summer treat of well-played and well-appreciated music. Mr. Laycock's Flute Concerto for Jasmine Choi (Songbird's Journey) showcased the young Korean flute virtuoso Jasmine Choi, clearly a rising star on the international music scene. …this three-movement work drew upon the full virtuostic (sic) abilities of the prodigious Ms. Choi. Ms. Choi played the joyful themes with clean runs, supporting the atmosphere of birds chasing one another. Throughout the work, Ms. Choi played with a great deal of physical energy and determination, fitting well into the majestic phrases."
