Album Review

Robin Spielberg is a very popular solo pianist in some musical circles, having put out over a dozen albums that sell well, including sets that celebrate motherhood and the Christmas season. Her melodic renditions of original ballads and classical-oriented themes could be considered new age except that they are a bit more sophisticated and not as repetitious. Meant as soothing music that can be used as music therapy or for thoughtful and romantic backgrounds, Spielberg's playing features her putting plenty of emotion into her melodies while rarely wandering away at all from the themes. But improvisation is besides the point when listening to this beautiful music; very secondary in favor of honest emotions and making what the CD back cover calls "exquisite melodic creations." Some will consider the music on A New Kind of Love to be rather sleepy while others will be stimulated by its sincerity, Spielberg's restrained but impressive technique, and the pretty melodies.

Robin's Best Album Yet!

“A New Kind of Love” is Robin Spielberg’s first release of new original material in eight years, and it was definitely worth the wait! With fifteen albums to her credit, Spielberg has matured gracefully both as an artist and as a woman who has experienced vast ups and downs in her life and has expressed many of them via her music. Spielberg has been one of my favorite artists since we first bumped into each other on the internet sometime around 1995, and I do believe this is her best album to date. Anyone who has seen Spielberg perform in concert knows that the stories behind her music are almost as big a part of the concert as the music itself, giving insight into the individual pieces as well as into the artist herself - truly a human being like the rest of us with a family, a garden, pets, love, pain, joy, memories, and all that makes up a life well-lived. Spielberg’s liner notes also tell the stories behind the music, and although they are much briefer than the stories told live, they offer vivid pictures of how the music was inspired. AND, Spielberg is an amazing pianist who puts heart and soul into her music, communicating a wide range of emotions to the listener. Most of the CD is on the quiet side, allowing it to be in the background, but this is music that needs to be savored again and again to be fully appreciated. All of the pieces are excellent, but I have some favorites. “A Walk Between The Raindrops” comes from a charming recollection of wondering as a child why her father never got wet on rainy days. His reply to her was that he just walked between the raindrops and that he’d show her how one day, creating many mysterious images. The music is fluid and graceful and yet suggests the falling of raindrops. “The Orange Fox Waits” is a tender love song for a beloved family cat who sadly passed away the day after the song was recorded. “This Busy Life” reminds me a bit of one of my other favorites of Spielberg’s pieces, “The Nature of Time.” Full of the energy of a fast-paced life, it also exudes joy and exhilaration rather than stress. A calm interlude in the middle tells of the peace of sitting at the piano, letting everything else go for a time. This should become a Spielberg classic! Robin has done several concert tours in Korea, and has included two popular Korean tunes that have her own special treatment. “Picking Flowers” is another classic Spielberg piece. If you know anything about Spielberg, you know that she absolutely loves her garden. This little piece spills over with joy and sunshine. The title track is about being comfortable being alone and also about the camaraderie of friends. Thoughtful and introspective, it’s a gorgeous piece. “Seeing You Seeing Me” is a loving tribute to a longtime best friend who is always there, no matter what. The CD closes with “It’s All Just As Well,” a piece I adore. It’s a bluesy piece that tells of acceptance and letting go of past dreams and ambitions, and is a great close to a great album. Brava, Robin! I’m sure “A New Kind of Love” is going to be garnering a lot of attention, so pick up a copy and ENJOY!

Beautiful album!

Robin Spielberg is one of my favorite solo pianists. How nice to hear some new music from her. Some very good songs on this album. "I Remember Spring," "The Orange Fox Waits," "Picking Flowers" are my favorites. Lovely melodies and her music sounds so cheerful and uplifting. Thanks Robin!

A MUST BUY!!

WOW!! As I sit here and listen to my "New Kind of Love" CD for the 25th time since I received it Friday, I am in awe of the talent and ability you have to bring such peace and serenity to the piano keyboard (and my life!). This is by far your best album ever, and I would know! I have them all and listen to them daily. After the first track began, I said to myself...this is the best song Robin has ever done! only to hear track two, which was the best song ever...until I heard track 3!!! You can guess the rest of the story. This entire CD is full of "best songs ever". I shared this CD with my sister and my mother, for Mother's Day (which you so kindly signed for each of them). They also are loyal fans of yours and hail this as your best recording. (Is there a grammatical rule that warns against using the word "best" more than 3 times in a paragraph???) I'll be anxiously awaiting the note for note transcription! In a hectic, busy world full of more daily activities than time to do them, your music is the best therapy I could ask for. Thank you for sharing your gift of music with my family.
