“Light Longing is an ethereal journey into the beauty of progressive classical music. For anyone who thinks violins are boring, this album will prove you wrong. It leaves you mesmerized by the peace and serenity an excellent violinist can give. The melodic pop feel of the album only adds to its appeal for the modern music listener. Ambient beats support the heavenly sound of her violin that can do nothing but refresh your spirit and mind. Highly recommended after a long day of work when you need to relax and replenish yourself.
Catya Mare is truly a talented artist, a rare gem in the mainstream pop world today. A beautiful treat to the ears that will take you to places you’d never thought existed, and from which you’ll never want to come back.”

Catya Maré was a featured soloist in Europe by the age of 10. So it came as quite a surprise to this classical trained prodigy when she found herself creating improvisational music after a long bout with the flu. The creative freedom she found so unexpectedly led her to a whole new career and a style of playing that some may find reminiscent of early Kitaro. Her compositions are soaring and ethereal, as one listener noted, “light given voice”. She blends the sound of her violin seamlessly with the synthesized keyboards and incorporates delicate percussion and effects nicely. On this album (which was retitled and repackaged when she signed with Spectra), all nine pieces are quite rich in melody and emotion. I especially like “Spring”.
This is an exceptionally nice album.

“Catya Mare is a violinist that hails from Denmark, and perhaps one of the most talented violinists I have heard in a long time.
The violin is her voice; it brings forth sensual, atmospheric melodies with music that refreshes the soul.
Her music has begun to gain popularity across Europe through her MySpace website, and now her second CD, Clouds, exhibits another ethereal journey into the beauty of progressive classical music.
For anyone who thinks violins are boring, this album will prove you wrong. The ambient pop feel supports the heavenly sound of her violin that can do nothing but refresh your spirit and mind.
It is what legendary music does best : every track on this CD touches the soul … and it touches the sky. It was impossible to just listen to every selection once or twice.
Each song on Clouds expresses such emotion that the listener feels it. The music tells a beautiful story. It paints pictures in the listeners’ mind that cannot be described as anything less that gorgeous. Technically, the music is totally flawless.
Clouds may give off the impression that it is classical, but it is much more than that; it exposes the other side of the world.
Denmark is certainly lucky to have such an amazing violinist.”
Anne Carrington - Indie Music Stop (Nov 24, 2007)
“…With full orchestral backup on many of her songs, even those that are stripped down to nothing more than Catya’s violin also have all the textures of a forest at sunrise. And I also discovered that her music paints pictures in my mind that are absolutely gorgeous. Technically, I find any point of her music to be flawless…
Comparing her to any of the finest violinists in the world isn’t out of the question. I really look forward to Catya Maré’s music being included on MIXXSTUDIOS playlist. Steve, you’re right, she is fabulous.

“…visions of sunrises, sunsets and rainbows so hauntingly beautiful, spiritual, peaceful … and ever so holy. You took me far into my dreamworld and you made me feel like … like, well, just like “It Came True”. What an absolutely beautiful and inspirational experience it was for me. You make music do what great music - what legendary music does best - with every beat of the heart it touches the soul … and it touches the sky. It was impossible to just listen to this song once or twice - no, for me, it was much more than that. This is a wonderful, beautiful song Catya … no words were spoken, yet every word was said. Thank you for such a deeply emotional piece of music - I’m honored to add “It Came True” to Legendary Music”
