Review: There's a fascinating disjunction shaping the work of pianist Anjou. In one bend of being, her endeavors warmly embrace an ecumenical approach, open lines and the ability to connect clearly play as prime factors in her art. But in an opposing arc there comes an air of mystery, a taste of aural arcana, both in her flights and advances.
