Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This Minimal Piano Collection is maximal. Nine CDs worth of minimalist music for solo piano should keep anyone giddy with repetitive delight for months on end. The set includes music by usual suspects such as Philip Glass, John Adams, Michael Nyman and Terry Riley, but also music with its own minimalist sensibilities of spaciousness and calm by Arvo Pärt, Erik Satie and pianist Jeroen van Veen, the lone performer of the set." -- NPR Deceptive Cadence "This Minimal Piano Collection is maximal.
