What The Critics Are Saying…

The composer is right when he says the collection shows how a great player can make an instrument speak in so many voices; for music that is quite abstract, the sleeve notes are straightforward and add to the experience, and Heather Roche is an accomplished clarinettist. Most of the music is also pretty accessible.

” —Jeremy Condliffe, The Chronicle

Wright is a pianist-scholar, and an aficionado of this sort of repertory. His best skill is his legato playing, and that’s an essential skill to have if you are going to play and record a program of operatic transcriptions. , I am expecting The Operatic Pianist III in early 2021, and I am sure I will enjoy that one too.

” —Raymond Tuttle, Fanfare

Willscher composes well-crafted music of real inventiveness in a thoroughly tonal idiom that makes liberal use of medieval modes and modern dissonances… Willscher’s voice is definitely his own. The playing here is absolutely terrific, with Cooman at every point making the best possible case for his friend and colleague’s music. Enthusiastically recommended.

” —James A. Altena, Fanfare

The writing is very accessible and tonal, though occasionally he toys with the harmonies enough to remind you that he is, in fact, a contemporary composer. Turner has composed delicate and attractive music that is tuneful and that has the appropriate holiday glow about it. The performances are exquisitely lovely and the recorded sound is perfectly balanced, warm and natural… one of the holiday season’s nicest releases.
