Notes & Reviews:

Solitary is a collection of solo piano works written during periods of extreme isolation and creative austerity in the respective composers' lives. The recording, Jacob Greenberg's debut full length CD, features works by Kurtag, Schoenberg, Mozart, Schumann, and Greenberg himself. Jacob Greenberg is a member of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE), and a regular collaborator with such artists as soprano Tony Arnold and flutist Claire Chase. The solo piano’s introspective and solitary sound glues the diverse program together here, as does Mr. Greenberg's hauntingly beautiful playing. There is something so intimate and cerebral about the sound of the piano, a sound that sheds the visceral qualities of vibrato and overt timbral differentiation, that a recital program such as this one can feel as if it takes place all within the inner life of the mind, even as it covers vast expressive territory.
