Reviews

Excerpts from Schulslaper's (mixed) July/August 2012 review
"Carson and his fellow pianists [John Mark Harris and Jacob Rhodebeck] ... play with fluid ease, subtly nuanced dynamic control, and expressive attention. Carson...creates resonant, almost electronic effects.

"[Carson's] ideas...the establishment and erosion of musical boundaries, the evolution/devolution of melody, and the use of silence as a structural component take shape in...swiftly scurrying flurries, motifs fast or slow...sudden fortes that produce an impact out of proportion with their amplitude ... to say that [Persistent Names of Lost Spaces] is too long...would be paraphrasing the prince in Amadeus who chides Mozart for writing 'too many notes.'
