CD: Dreams & Prayers
“Golijov’s ‘The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind’ is ‘programmatic’ on a number of levels. If this suggests a rather dry quasi-philological exercise, then Golijov’s music is anything but boring, shifting unpredictably from meditative stasis to dynamic dance-like moments… Paul Roe and the Contempo Quartet are impressive throughout.”
_ Gramophone review 2013
“This recording is a collection of solos and duos mostly featuring composers with whom Roe has worked closely…collaboration is a central tenet of Roe’s philosophy of the creative musical experience…[his] playing is sincere and secure, and his improvisations show…his deep understanding of their compositions.”
