Notes & Reviews:

The extraordinary soundscapes conjured by Morton Feldman and George Crumb are like nothing else in the whole of twentieth-century music, and Steven Osborne is the most sympathetic of guides to these rarefied worlds. This meticulously crafted program features Feldman's last solo piano work, Palais de Mari, and Crumb's A Little Suite for Christmas, which traces the life of Jesus Christ.

Sunday Times, 12th June 2016
Three brief works by Morton Feldman, from 1952, open this hypnotic recital of music by two of the 20th century's American greats. The first explores resonance and colour, the second concentrates minds on pitch and the third is about repetition.

The Guardian, 19th May 2016
What's so marvellous about the way Steven Osborne plays Feldman is how entirely alert he is to those kaleidoscopic gradations...This is a pianist whose recent solo discs have featured music by Schubert and Mussorgsky, and he brings something of their singing and robust tones even to the most hushed and abstract of Feldman's lines.
