Aisha's performances of the fantasias range from personal and stylistic interpretations to versions marked by the distortion and fragmentation of the material through the use of contemporary violin techniques. The variety of extreme colours, sounds and tones illuminates the polyphonic character and phrasing of the music, while also adding unfamiliar and distant qualities.

"The London-based Kazakh violinist specialises in fearless, confrontational ventures into postwar modernism and the avant-garde of now; unsurprising, then, that her account of Telemann’s 1735 pieces takes the fantasy name at face value and totally reimagines them..." The Guardian
