Feldman, Crumb piano works
'What’s so marvellous about the way Steven Osborne plays Feldman is how entirely alert he is to those kaleidoscopic gradations ... In his interpretation of the George Crumb pieces (the noble 1983 piece Processional, the strummed strings and bell-like sounds of A Little Suite for Christmas), what comes to mind is the sumptuous grandeur of Osborne’s towering 2002 recording of Messiaen’s Vingt Regards sur l’Enfant-Jésus: mystical yet grounded, muscular yet ecstatic.'
'This has to be heard'
'Played with extreme sensitivity by Steven Osborne, this is a disc for late-night listening — silence, peace, reverie'
'A superb disc, and one to convert any Feldmanphobes out there'
'There is a powerful hypnotism going on here drawing you in, willingly and consciously'
