Notes & Reviews:

"This collection presents a wide panoramic view on Mahler's talents, articulated through different kinds of score masterfully executed on piano by Nirit Tilles (who shares with him a passion for ragtime) and - when applicable - sung by the composer, alone or with his wife Julie Hanify and the pianist herself. The four versions of the (unfortunately) short 'Chorale' interspersing the 37-minute cycle 'Day Creek Piano Works and The Teams Are Waiting In The Fields' are alone worth of owning the record; as a charming vocal counterpoint as you could wish for...As the time elapses, one thinks that Mahler is a wonderful person. A man who just gives, seemingly wanting nothing in exchange. That's possibly the reason behind the still insufficient recognition of his opus, which is a veritable shame. Right now I'd pick Only Music Can Save Me Now in a sizeable quantity of celebrated contemporary releases lacking the same modest luminosity, intelligence and warmth. The record's name alone should be everyone's dogma." - Massimo Ricci, Touching Extremes
