Robin’s newest CD for Christmas is sure to delight lovers of traditional songs for the season. A unique and simply transporting rendition of “Carol of the Bells” opens the CD followed by Christmas favorites “Silent Night”, “O Holy Night”, “The First Noel”….all beautifully arranged and lovingly performed on solo piano. “The Christmas Collection” is sure to become a holiday favorite for conjuring up images of cherished Christmas’ past, and for creating a delicate and delightful atmosphere for Christmas seasons to come.
"Like a warm holiday gathering, Robin Spielberg’s The Christmas Collection invites the listener to indulge at a table set with a feast of rich holiday morsels. Ms. Spielberg presents her delectables with an unhurried savoring of each one, giving the listener time to enjoy each course in her holiday bouquet. Maybe that sounds a little gushy, but I was struck by the warmheated style in evidence on this new CD. And if you thought that metaphor was over the top, read on.
Ms. Spielberg’s hands imbue her music with a sentimental accessibility and informality that belie its formal underpinnings. Setting an earnest tone with a delicate rendering of Carol of the Bells, she continues with a series of gentle heartfelt arrangements composed in a way to give currency to timesless values.
Of particular interest was her arrangment of Merry Christmas, originally performed by Judy Garland in the 1949…Her inclusion of Merry Christmas represents the unearthing of a rare find that often compels me to buy a record. I also enjoyed the unpretentious Wind Through The Olive Trees, a song I hadn’t heard.
So by creating a warm sound and by including a couple of lesser-known works, Robin Spielberg has pretty much the standard set of Christmas carols and made them sound new." -Richard Banks, ChristmasReviews.com
"As a piano teacher who teaches Christmas music from the end of October (recital preparation) through the holidays, there is kind of a standing joke about how much I hate Christmas music by the time the holiday actually arrives, but this collection is so elegant and lovingly played that it might be one of the few that I will continue to enjoy right through Christmas Day...This is a wonderful collection of Christmas music that would be a great accompaniment for your holiday festivities as well as a soothing antidote for the stresses of the season. Very highly recommended!" Kathy Parsons for MainlyPiano.com
