Stuart Derdeyn, 5 things to know about Music for Self-Isolation
CBC In Concert’s Record of the Week:Truly a record of our times. There is a sense of loss and shared spirit in this music. It is saying, we might not be able to be together but let’s BE together.” – Paolo Pietropaolo
Audrey Good performs Music for Self-Isolation – Horn on Gramophone’s Video of the Day

“…these are distinct, lonesome miniatures, capturing the thoughts, hopes, and exhaustions of a difficult time. Contrary to the title, this is music against social isolation. Now that the recording has arrived, we can give them the ovation they deserve.”

Samuel Rogers, A Closer Listen

“The album reminds us that music is among the most mysterious and highest order of human skills.”

Andrew Timar, The WholeNote Magazine

“It takes a special skill to be able to create a whole atmosphere in a work that is just 2 minutes long. I really liked that.”
– Suzy Klein, Essential Classics
