Pavla's music mirrors her true self, and hence flows freely.
The sounds and words in her debut CD, "Mirror", are born from her past and mingled with her future. The choir and organ which she heard during her early years in church and the sounds of nature come together, mixing dreams and memories.
The world of cinema with its scope for dreaming influenced Pavla as she listened to soundtrack after soundtrack, absorbing the music and all it represented.
This first music love now transpires through the innovative arrangements of Pavlas original piano compositions. Pavla wrote "Magic Mirror" as a reflection of woman and women, and it is the womans voice of Nastassja Kinski which enriches the track in this recording. Roberto Conforti of Pulcher Femina deepens the tone with his voice in "Overdose".
"Grandmother" is dedicated to the very woman who represented freedom for Pavla - in her grandmother's garden she was free to dream, free to think, free to listen. While her youth was spent listening to the conversations of the old, today the voices of children recall those years. In "Mirror" these voices are joined as one and are the expression of the clash between Pavla's inner self and the outside world in her search for personal freedom.
