'Contemporary music could not lose in this concert with multiple resonances; pleasure of discovery came from the young composer Sophie Lacaze, whose Voices of Australia for solo flute and recorded voices, mix rhythms and weird, mysterious sounds of birds songs with human voices… this symbiosis of living voices, made as an electronic mastering, had the savour of countless life calls'.
Hilda Van Hell, Luxembourg press, August 2006

' "La Vita è Bella ?" revealed music of fluent charm and the kind of originality that can sometimes accompany modesty.'
R. Chapman-Smith, The Advertiser, October 12, 1999


'Independence of spirit and style, heartfelt expression, a natural aspiration toward refinement, a clear taste for a merging of words and music, like stage music but without over-dramatization or redundancy, a natural curiosity driving an interest in all forms of art and all genuine artists, make Sophie Lacaze a sensitive, astute composer, an artist whose main objective is to offer listeners the resonance of the inner music created by her particularly attractive form of sensitivity and refinement.'
J.A. Kobiela, composer and musical critic, February 1996


'Great performance of trois melodies for voice and string trio by Lacaze. The audience was amazed.'
