Here's the latest crop of reviews regarding our latest album "When Words Fade" and our release performance at Galapagos Arts Space in NYC.
Believe all the hype: Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe—more famously called Anderson and Roe—are electric. At Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn, this piano duo did more than celebrate the launch of their new album; they fashioned an entirely new concert experience.
They are already powerful pianists that become super-charged in each other’s presence, and proceed to give very thoughtful and colorful performances with a passion that separates them from populists.
The Rachmaninoff was special, not swooning but with a dry strength, and the exquisite cadenza brought them deserved “bravos.” Behind their flair, they are at their best in quieter music, pieces that reveal the fine quality of their musicianship. ...an enthralling performance of Schumann’s “Mondnacht,” which I wished would never end.
Arresting... fierce... glittering.. affecting... electrifying. Listening to the sweet strains of “Mathilde, Marieke, et Madeleine,” based on songs by Jacques Brel and Gérard Jouannest, feels like slipping into a smoky Parisian cabaret.
A decidedly broad-minded young piano duo.
