Review

"Music trickles elegantly, as from a small stream's easy late spring waterfall". -- New Alternatives in Publishing & Retail Alliance Mag.

"Original piano solos from Robin's gentle hands make a fine bouquet any time of year...'Flying' is an especially joyous free-float for the soul..." -- NAPRA REVIEW Magazine

"Personal piano - that's the style Robin Spielberg plays. It's an appealing style too, full of warmth and personality and an earnest desire to communicate with her listeners" -- Milwaukee Journal

"The bonus track alone is worth have the CD for.. 'Wedding on the Mountain' and 'One Last Look' are melodic standouts as is 'Turn the Page'" -- City Magazine of Southwest Virginia

Format: Audio CD
I have been a big fan of Robin Spielberg's music for quite a few years now, and am delighted to say that I think "Dreaming of Summer" is her best album to date. Robin's music has always been full of optimism and strength, but the life-changing events of the past few years have brought a new depth and maturity to her composing and playing. I noticed this development the first time I listened to "Dreaming of Summer", and it became even more apparent the more I listened to the variety of moods and colors in this compelling collection of new piano solos. "Dreaming" is also the debut release from playMountain Music, a new label formed by Robin and her photographer/marketing expert husband, Larry Kosson, giving them full control of Robin's releases. As a composer, this also provides Robin with much more freedom and flexibility (as well as a ton of additional work for two of the hardest-working people in the world!). Co-produced and engineered by Steven Miller, the sound quality of this album is amazing. So many solo piano albums have wheezing sounds from the pedals, popping noises from inside the piano or squeaks from the bench, but this has a fresh, "live" sound without distractions from the background - an incredible feat! Each of the pieces on this CD works wonderfully as a stand-alone work as well as part of a unified whole.Read more ›

"Conceived in the winter, when it's cold and grey and flowers sleep in the frozen ground, Spielberg's latest album whets the bittersweet edge of yearning and nostalgia. The album notes (and in live performance Spielberg's excellent storytelling provide intriguing anecdotes describing the genesis of most cuts--but, let it be said such tales are mere points of departure. Her music is not really storytelling, but about the emotional connections stimulated by memories. One piece, "Saving the Irises," was prompted by an account of an iris garden nearly destroyed by storm, but the underlying sense seems to arise from adimension of irretrievable loss, as expressed through key changes and unexpected shifts in progressions. Indeed, it is the sub-text of her music that invites the deepest consideration. The final cut, a 'bonus' piece, is Spielberg's way of working magic with the "Pachelbel Canon in D." She takes confident liberties with its stately rhythms and well-known fugue, making this piece truly her own. --ALB for New Age Voice Magazine (October 2000 issue)

Format: Audio CD
I'm a bit of an old cynic, I'm afraid. My general reaction when liner notes and biographical details spend more time telling you how wonderful the musician is as a person than they do talking about the music I steer in the other direction. Especially when some of details turn out to have a strong hype component. It is fortunate for me that I heard this album before I delved into the details. Otherwise, I would never have listened to it.

Spielberg is a pianist whose work on this album is a bit like George Winston and another bit like Philip Aaberg. A dash more romantic than either, but the same melody over chord style with a strong element of improvisation. A bit simplistic, but successful overall, with occasionally captivating moments. Always listenable. This album, which is the first under her own label, is an excellent introduction to her playing and style.

Robin has appeared on some 12 different albums, and seems to have a lease on an inexhaustible fount of energy that sends her on tours throughout the world. So more than a little of the egregious self-promotion is true. Hearing, as it is said, is believing. I'm glad I discovered this album in the order I did, and intend to make up for lost time in acquiring more of her work.
