Review: All of pianist Galper's discs are showcases of his quest for the perfection of the elastic approach to tempo called the rubato style. And it could be credibly said that perfection has been achieved.
His latest disc captures Galper in the most mesmerizing of sets. He and his long-term trio with enter "The Zone"—where self-awareness is lost, leaving the music to control the proceedings. His music is fluid and free, beautiful and approachable.
