Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
This program of contemporary anti-war piano pieces was conceived by pianist Sarah Cahill in 2003 during the Iraq War. There is a rich tradition in classical music as well. Sarah Cahill plays with a variety of color and nuance, from the ghostlike pianissimos required in 'Sonamu' to the swingy tang of Terry Riley's rag.
