EDITORS’ NOTES

There’s a beautiful simplicity about Oliver Caplan’s music, infused as much of it is with the evocative sounds of folk song. The intimate “To the Sea,” the longest work here, paints a tender portrait of coastal communities, while the four-movement title suite You Are Not Alone is a personal, heartrending voyage through—and away from—the shattering pain of grief. The luminous beauty of Caplan’s music stems from his influences Aaron Copland and John Corigliano—most apparent in the gorgeous Love Letters, a touching tribute to Caplan’s husband.

"Community, transformation, and above all, love", this quote from the liner notes says it all. Listen and love each piece for its power and magic.

Another wondeful album!

Generous and hopeful, Oliver’s second album walks us through a varied emotional landscape. From the lighthearted and optimistic “Love Letters” to the solemn and poignant “You Are Not Alone,” we can be reminded how we are all connected through life and music. Highly recommended!
