CD Reviews

Geoff Smith -Black Flowers
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album was a genuine surprise to me. I bought it for the string classical instrumental, but fell in love with the first six cuts which feature the vocals of Nicola Smith. This music is mesmerizing, yet it takes a lot of surprising turns so you're never bored. One of the best CDs i've purchased in the past year."
The second and best album of Geoff Smith so far

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If "Fifteen Wild Decembers" was very good, "Black Flowers" is (put simply) a pure jewel ! The vocals of Nicola Smith, interleaved with the great piano compos of his husband, are a wonder to listen to. Much better than any album of Dead Can Dance, IMHO. That says all :)"
String Quartet: "The White Girl"
Michael Sweeney | Toronto, Canada | 08/19/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I cannot praise Geoff Smith's string quartet, "The White Girl" enough. At the very least, it is the equal of any of the quartets of Michael Nyman or Robert Moran's quartet extracted from his opera "From the Towers of the Moon." I listen to The White Girl often and am mesmerized by it. What I love about it is Smith takes the genre of the string quartet (along with its heavy baggage of traditional repertoire) and has composed something at once forward looking, yet respectful of tradition. The White Girl is not "neo-classical" and not hard-core Modernist (like Carter) - it walks somewhere in between using a 20-21st c. vocabulary, but is incredibly easy on the ears. I love this fine piece. It is played fantastically well by the Smith Quartet and recorded beautifully.

In doing some research on the web I am disappointed only that Mr. Smith does not have more recordings to his name. I also wish he had a web site with a mailing list as I'd like to be informed about any new releases in the future. You've got to get this CD!
