CD Reviews

This CD is a must-have.

""Little Three" is one of my favorite CDs. Robin Holcomb is a terrific composer, so American, so evocative. If you love, say, intimate piano pieces by Brahms plus Elizabeth Cotten, you will love this recording."
Evocative piano compositions

"I first learned of Robin Holcomb from a clerk in a music store in Ann Arbor, and he had as difficult a time describing her music as I expect I will here. As confusing as this might sound, imagine piano compositions that are at once primitive, yet sophisticated, a kind of cross between protestant hymnals and Charles Ives, with an almost appalachian starkness. This is a recording that rewards detailed listening immensely while still being very effective as concentration-enhancing background music (in the very best sense of that term). While the entire album is bleakly beautiful, I would especially recommend "The Graveyard Song.""
