A requiem for "broken" piano, harp and child's voice. After many years as a professional harpist and teacher, she created her first major work, Requiem for Bosnia, in 1993. An homage to her homeland, the work combines the deep resonances of a "broken" piano with Jordanova's harp improvisations and the voice of a child.

"Strange and appealing... deeply serious music and yet not at all difficult for a susceptible listener...unsettling, cathartic,and yet still very beautiful...in the traditional sense."
