Almost Zen
Brian A. Reynolds | Portland, OR USA | 02/02/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The ping reminds me of the walking meditation of Thich Nhat Hahn. One walks slowly, but the mind wanders until the bell rings, and in that moment you are brought back to - now. So it is with this piece as the piano and the cello reflect each other in mood and tempo. The mind wanders, then ping - back to this moment."
Sui generis
Mr. Robert Hamilton | Hazelbrook Blue Mountains Australia | 11/10/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I first heard this CD on ABC Radio when driving to work from the Blue Mountains to Sydney - a weekly 1000 km. Of course once I'd heard it I had to have it! Others have written about the musicological features of this composer's work so there's really nothing I can add to their more informed opinions. It is simply ethereal music from another dimension and after hearing the high-quality BIS production, I'm gradually acquiring more of Part's music and look forward to spending more time learning about the composer as well as enjoying the music, which is, sui generis."
Blissful Peace - or Water Torture?
K. J. Evans | New Jersey, USA | 01/30/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"These are tranquil tones - excellent background for meditation or foreground for focused listening. This music has brought tears, it is that beautiful. But it's very minimal, too. A friend of mine (a second-hand listener from across the room) was plagued by the measured "pling-pling" notes - all she could really hear from a distance. It's lovely - but take it in sips, not gulps."
