Biography

"From the moment she walks on stage, until the last note gently caresses the room, Spielberg casts a spell on her audience that is palpable, visceral, and spiritual. Better said--after you see her perform, you'll just feel a whole lot better about the world." -Bruce Bressack/HippoPress New Hampshire

Product Description

Original melodic creations by Robin Spielberg for piano and piano/ensemble (flute, fiddle, percussion, cello, oboe & more)

Review

Piano soloist Spielberg has made the best record of an already illustrious career... her expert, yet delicate touch coaxes heart-opening melodies from a remarkably resonant instrument in crystal clarity. Being partnered on a few songs by guitarist Chris Theriault, fiddler Johnny Cunningham, and others on cello, flute, recorder and percussion does not diminish the haunting fragility of these remarkable compositions. Rather, tasteful accents only enhance their ethereal loveliness with a soothing, comforting, human touch that entices one even deeper into reverie. --New Age Retailer

This collection of original piano and piano/ensemble compositions earns high marks all around.Spielberg`s highly developed sense of melody is enhanced by a technical facility for the piano which lends an almost vocal air to these pieces....thoughtfully arranged and sensitively executed...Spielberg`s ability to conjure up visual images through purely instrumental works ranks among the best I have heard anywhere. --The Music Paper

Truly inspiring work that stands out in front of the new age pack; be sure and give this one a listen - it's MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! --Improvijazzation Nation

I've found it to be a great gift for friends and family.
Curtis Osmun
One of the things that makes the recording exceptional is the way it starts out quietly, builds, becomes quiet again, builds, and ends on a very peaceful note.
Kathy Parsons
This CD is a "must have" for anyone who appreciates good music.

Format: Audio CD
This is the sixth album from composer/pianist Robin Spielberg, and is every bit as good or better than her critically acclaimed best-seller, "Songs of the Spirit". The feel of the album reflects Robin's own gentle and optimistic personality, but this album is no snooze! One of the things that makes the recording exceptional is the way it starts out quietly, builds, becomes quiet again, builds, and ends on a very peaceful note. The instrumentation is excellent with Robin's piano sometimes solo and sometimes joined by cello, fiddle, flute, oboe, guitar, orchestra bells, and even accordion and bouzouki!
The album opens with "Dancing in the Gentle Rain", as lovely and refreshing as the title. The next two tracks are also soothing. Then we meet an elephant in the supermarket, which has to inspire a smile! "Butterfly" is a perfect musical description of a butterfly dancing in the spring sunshine. The title track tells the Sufi Teaching Story of a stream that had easily traveled through all sorts of terrain until it reached the desert. Each time it tried to cross, it found itself being absorbed by the sand. The Voice of the Desert told the stream that the wind crosses with ease, and that the stream could evaporate and be carried over the desert "in the arms of the wind". By trusting this voice, the stream was transported across the desert, fell as gentle rain on the other side, and went on its way. Robin strongly identifies with this story, and it really shows in the emotional content of this song. The orchestra bells in the background are soothing and haunting, and sounds of the wind carrying the stream are gorgeous. "Take the Time (Learning to Knit)" is patience set to music.

Words can't express how this music touched my every emotion. Sad? This is the CD to help you find your blessings. Pensive? Perfect music for reflection. Happy? "That's How the Story Goes" will have you wanting to dance.
This CD is a "must have" for anyone who appreciates good music.
