Notes and Editorial Reviews

"A House of Many Rooms" is a mysterious place that beckons you to explore.

Each inclusion on Eunbi Kim’s debut recording of multi-genre concert music by Fred Hersch evokes a distinct sound, atmosphere, or color waiting to be uncovered and interpreted by the listener. One variation is plush, reminding Kim of deep wine, silk and velvet. Another inspires a living room with a warm fireplace and sounds of light rain outside.

Kim plays this music vividly and fervently, exploring Hersch’s unrecorded works, as one would any newly discovered treasure trove from a living master.
