 Unfair to Gilbert June 22, 2012 By Don O'Connor (Kreamer, PA) See All My Reviews "On the whole, this is a good album, with rare and entirely worthwhile repertoire. The pratfall is Gilbert's "Dance in the Place Congo", a beautiful and atmospheric piece of early 20th century Americana. Or it would be if you could hear the whole piece. The piece has nearly half of its music cut out, and it shows. It proves Schoenberg's comment that when you cut a work, you merely get a shorter work that sounds too long.
Gilbert deserved better. The rest of the disc is fine."
